"They have defied the IOC's guidelines. Tainted officials like Bhanot should not have contested, but they are just interested in occupying posts", Randhir said.
"I don't know why an IOA delegation is going to Lausanne at all. They have already declared themselves elected. The IOC wanted the elections to be held under the Olympic Charter. What is there to talk now ?", Randhir remarked.
"I don't know why (IOA Acting President) V K Malhotra has allowed himself to come under pressure. He should have asserted himself and cleared the mess. He will now be responsible for whatever decision IOC takes. It will be a real shame is IOA is suspended", he said.
K P S Gill said that the IOA must clean itself up first and all other problems could be resolved later.
"IOA must clean itself first. Everything else comes later. All sorts of unsavoury characters are there in IOA, you can't make any progress because of such persons", he said.
Gill, who is now the IHF patron, was also critical of the two IOA delagates who will go to Lausanne to discuss the issue with IOC officials.
"These people have no record of doing anything for the promotion of sports. They have have violated guidelines for their own interest in the past. They don't have the credibility", he said referring to the two members Narinder Batra and R K Anand.
