Parents allege bias, move HC

Parents of 20 under-18 state-level champions on Monday moved the vacation bench of the Bombay High Court seeking a direction to Taekwondo Federation of India (TFI) to allow their children to participate in a national Taekwondo championship game on November 18 in Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh.

The parents have said their children were being discriminated against. "Two groups within the Taekwondo Association of Maharashtra are at loggerheads. Deserving children who have won gold and silver medals are suffering," the petition claims. The children wish to participate in the 32nd National Junior Taekwondo Championship at Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh to be held from November 18-21. As per the rules, candidates who have won gold and silver medals at state-level championships are entitled to participate in national and then international games. However, these 20 children were not allowed to enroll for the national level game, their lawyer Pranjali Joshi said.
