New Delhi, Jun 1: Former India hockey captain Pargat Singh today called on the government to form a "National Game Code" on the lines of National Emblem and National Anthem to pull the game out of the present "confused" state of affairs.
Pargat asked the government to prepare a 100-day action plan, which will envisage a debate on hockey's status by the parliamentarians in the Lok Sabha, a media aided "Save Hockey" campaign and a hockey conclave.
"Hockey India, Indian Hockey Federation and the Sports Ministry made hockey look like football. Nobody is willing to take responsibility, everyone is passing on the buck. So my demand is a National Code for hockey," Pargat told reporters here today.
"There is a code of conduct for the National Anthem, National Flag and National Emblem. If anyone breaks them, the government can punish the offenders.", said Pargat Singh. PTI
