World Archery appoints observer for AAI elections, will suspension on India be lifted?
The World Archery has appointed its Asia Region Vice-President, Kazi Rajib Uddin Ahmed Chapol as the observer for AAI polls after a discussion with the Indian Olympic Association President Narinder Batra.
The observer will be required to submit a report on his observations and based on the report the Executive Committee of the World Archery will consider ‘conditional lifting‘ of the suspension on the Indian Archery Federation.
Due to factionalism in AAI, two opposing archery factions were created led by two different Presidents- Union Minister Arjun Munda and BVP Rao. There was confusion over which of the two is the legitimate body.
