Guidelines violatedAn AFI official said there was no violation of the Sports Code, but Rahul Mehra, a lawyer and sports activist, had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Delhi High Court, complaining that government guidelines had been violated during the polls.The court had directed the ministry to file its reply by the second week of September. The ministry missed the deadline, the latest one being November 22.Even as the ministry probes the AFI polls, treasurer, Satyanarayan, an employee of the Railways, has put in his papers. The reason given was weak. "It is difficult for me to handle the functioning of the federation," said Satyanarayan. Secretary of the Karnataka Athletics Association, he didn't throw light on the failure to take requisite permission from his employers before taking over as AFI treasurer.The Satyanarayan issue, it is learnt, is one of the areas the ministry has sought clarification on. The election of secretary general, CK Valson, though unanimous, is also a source of concern. Valson, a former chairman of the AFI technical unit, had represented Tamil Nadu in the April polls.
