It has been two weeks since the Indian Olympic Association’s (IOA) ad-hoc committee was constituted to look after the Indian wrestling federation, but no steps have been taken so far towards the election of the wrestling federation. Of the three members of the committee, the retired judge has not been appointed yet, but sources in the IOA say that within the next seven to 10 days, the elections to the wrestling association will be announced. Only after this a retired judge will be appointed, who will take charge of conducting the elections. IOA President PT Usha and Joint Secretary Kalyan Choubey will handle the election announcement.
