Narinder Batra has resigned as the President of the International Hockey Federation. Along with this, he has given up the membership of the International Olympic Committee and has also resigned from his post from the Indian Olympic Association. He has resigned from all his posts in three separate official letters. The Delhi High Court in its judgment on 25 May terminated the life membership of Hockey India. Batra contested the elections on the basis of this membership and also won in 2017.

After the High Court’s decision, Batra was set to step down as the President of the Indian Olympic Association. Along with this, he has decided to leave the other two responsibilities as well.

Batra wrote to the Executive Board of the International Hockey Federation saying, “Due to personal reasons, I resign as the President of the International Hockey Federation.”

Batra would have had to quit the membership of the International Olympic Committee after he stepped down as the President of the Indian Olympic Association. In such a situation, his decision is understandable, but his resignation from the post of President of the International Hockey Federation is shocking. He could have served Indian hockey by staying in this post.
