New Delhi: In a fresh round of administrative churning in Indian boxing, the national federation's President Sandeep Jajodia and Secretary General Jay Kowli are set to be ousted through a No Confidence Motion when the body holds a Special General Meeting here on Sunday.
Jajodia, who took charge of Boxing India in September last year after elections monitored by the International Boxing Association, has his back against the wall with most of 31 state units revolting against him.
Along with him, Kowli is also set to be ousted by the disgruntled units, which claim that things have come to a standstill in BI owing to trust deficit between Jajodia and Kowli.
Jajodia's relationship with Kowli collapsed owing to prolonged differences. The final straw was Kowli allegedly forging Jajodia's signature in a routine letter to the Asian Boxing Confederation earlier his year. The incident had prompted Jajodia to declare to all BI members that he could no longer work with Kowli.
"Tomorrow, Mr Jajodia and Mr Kowli will face the No Confidence Motion because there is a massive disconnect. The two of them are unable to get along with each other and this has stalled Boxing India. It is more or less clear that they will be forced out," a state representative told PTI on condition of unanimity.
"Their decision to boycott the National Games to protest against the IOA united the state units against BI," he said.
The Jajodia camp, however, insisted that it won't concede defeat without a fight.
"Nobody will throw in the towel, let the motion be presented and let's see what happens. Mr Jajodia will not step down on his own," said a source.
If the motion leads to Jajodia's ouster, the rebelling units revealed that the next plan of action would be call another meeting where a fresh elections for the two posts would be conducted.
"Nothing will be done in a hurry because we don't want any trouble with the world body. Boxing India's constitution would be followed in totality and fresh elections will be held to pick the right people for these positions," another revolting official said.
