Kalmadi hits out at sports minister

india Updated: Jan 26, 2011 23:30 IST

An embattled Suresh Kalmadi hit back at the sports minister, terming his sacking from the chairmanship of Commonwealth Games Organising Committee as “illegal and uncalled for”.

A day after he was sacked as CWG OC chairman by the new sports minister Ajay Maken, Kalmadi remained defiant and said that only the Indian Olympic Association, which has appointed him to the post, has the power to remove him.

Kalmadi said that he would hand over the charge of Organising Committee chairman to the Chief Executive Jarnail Singh — as has been told to do by the sports minister — under protest.
