Maken lauds court’s decision on KalmadiJuly 25th, 2012 - 9:03 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) India’s sports Minister Ajay Maken Wednesday lauded the Delhi High Court’s decision of barring Indian Olympic Association (IOA) president Suresh Kalmadi from attending the Olympic Games opening ceremony in London Friday.
Maken tweeted: “RT@timesnow: Just in: High court denies permission to Suresh Kalmadi to attend Olympic opening ceremony #TIMESNOW Good work Rahul Mehra!”
Earlier this week, Maken and Kalmadi traded verbal volleys about the scam-tainted Pune MP’s sojourn to the London Olympics.
Maken had commented: “Someone charge-sheeted on corruption charges should not go for the Olympics,” to which Kalmadi had replied that no charge had been proven against him.
The Delhi High Court Wednesday allowed Kalmadi, sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, to visit Britain but restrained him from attending the July 27 opening ceremony of the London Olympics 2012.
