OC officials call for executive board meeting

other Updated: Aug 03, 2010 00:34 IST

In the wake of the Central Vigilance Commission and the Commonwelath Games Federation’s call for obtaining quality assurance certificates for all Games’ venues, key members of the Delhi 2010 Organising Committee have called for an emergency meeting of the OC’s executive, putting pressure on OC chairman, Suresh Kalmadi.

In a letter to the executive, IOA secretary general, and OC vice-chairman, Randhir Singh, said the allegations in the media were “grave”, and that the Board must meet within 48 hours to find a resolution to the existing issues plaguing the Games.

Randhir reportedly has the backing of OC treasurer, Anil Khanna, and IOA vice-president, V K Malhotra. There were also unconfirmed reports that Kalmadi has agreed to the demand, and the meeting will be held on August 5.
