“I have also seen today, unnecessary comments regarding the Team. I want to repeat, what I said to the Selection Committee, when they were first formed, ”Please concentrate with full integrity on your job, of making the best selection for India, and pass your recommendations, to the President of the Ad-hoc Committee, Suresh Kalmadi, who should, as in Cricket, inform India”,” he said.
Later, he added that it is damaging to have individual members of the Committee, comment in the middle of the Tournament.
“The Committee functions collectively, and the final authority, lies with the Ad-hoc Managing Committee, and it’’s Chairman,” he added. (ANI)
