I can't understand why the Cricket Board is opposing to RTI Act being applied in all the NSFs," he said.
"It will bring transparency and it's for betterment of Indian sports. "I also welcome the provisions of 25 per cent reservation of athletes in NSFs as athletes should have a say in decision making," he added. I think it should come under the purview of the government," he said..
This is a bold step but I can see it will be a difficult job as many National Sports Federations have presidents and secretaries who are ministers and MPs and they are influential," he said.
"I remember Margaret Alva issuing a letter that presidents of NSFs should not have more than two terms and IAS and IPS officers should take home ministry permission before contesting NSF elections. I was in that committee of sports ministry 35 years back," he added.
NEW DELHI: The Indian Olympic Association and the federations might be against it but the National Sports Bill has got a collective thumbs up from India's top athletes, who feel the draft has the potential to drastically change the country's sports scene.
Welcoming provisions like the one seeking a 25 per cent quota for athletes in all National Sports Federations (NSFs), current and former stars such as badminton ace Saina Nehwal, her coach Pullela Gopichand, golfer Jeev Milkha Singh and Olympic bronze-medallist boxer Vijender Singh hoped that the document would get the cabinet's nod.
"BCCI is obviously the best sports federation of the country. "I did feel that the sports minister is correct when he said that there should be accountability. If that is the whole idea of the bill, then I am up for it," he added.
Making every federation accountable can only be good.
