CGF toes IOC line after IOA suspension.

FOLLOWING in the footsteps of the International Olympic Committee ( IOC), the Commonwealth Games Federation ( CGF) has decided to distance itself from the Abhay Singh Chautalaled Indian Olympic Association ( IOA) for the preparation for next year's CWG in Scotland.

In a letter to IOC member Randhir Singh, CGF chief executive officer Mike Hooper said that the CGF's recent executive board meeting took the decision to recognise the IOA led by VK Malhotra, who was the acting chief before the controversial December 5 polls.

" The CGF will, in accordance with the position taken by the IOC, continue to recognise Mr VK Malhotra as acting president and yourself as secretary general," the letter said. The organisers said they will now correspond with them for India's participation in the Games.
