World Archery appoints observer for AAI polls suspension set to be lifted conditionally

@worldarchery
The World Archery has set the ball rolling for a conditional lifting of the suspension of the Indian Federation by appointing its observer for the much-anticipated elections in New Delhi on Saturday.
 
Following a discussion with the Indian Olympic Association President Narinder Batra, the WA decided to send its Asia Region  Vice-President Kazi Rajib Uddin Ahmed Chapol as an observer, on whose report a call on lifting of the suspension would be taken.

WA Secretary General Tom Dielen in a letter to the Chairman of the Transitory Committee Justice (Retd.) Badar Durrez Ahmed wrote that following the observers' report, the WA Executive Committee will consider the next steps which if things go well could include a conditional lifting of the suspension.

Justice Chapol, from Bangladesh, had earlier acted as a mediator to bring the two factions of Archery Association of India together but both groups went ahead with separate elections simultaneously in New Delhi and Chandigarh on 9th of June last year to elect two Presidents namely, Union Minister Arjun Munda and retired IAS officer BVP Rao. This led to the suspension of the AAI.

The suspension meant that the Indian archers failed to compete at the South Asian Games in Nepal in December last year and were allowed at the Asian Championships in Bangkok as 'neutral athletes' only because the event was a continental Olympic qualifier.
