NEW DELHI:  Bowling Federation of India (BFI) on Saturday joined Hockey India in demanding a special general body meeting of the Indian Olympic Association to float a no-confidence motion against president N Ramachandran.

BFI president Sunaina Kumari and secretary general D R Saini sent a letter to the IOA stating that it has no confidence in Ramachandran and a special GBM should be called at the earliest. “As per Rule VIII (i) and (ii) of IOA Constitution, we the Bowling Federation of India are moving a no-confidence motion against Mr N Ramachandran, president IOA, as we are totally in disagreement with his working and along with it we also feel he is working towards weakening and finishing off the IOA,” BFI said in the letter.

The BFI’s letter came just two days after Hockey India president Narinder Batra shot off a similar note to the IOA to move a no-confidence motion against Ramachandran and to call a special GBM to vote on the issue.
