The "continuing stand-off" between India's government and sports administrators over a controversial Sports Code resulted "in the postponement of a crucial joint meeting with the IOC, delaying India's re-entry into the Olympic movement," according to the PTI. The meeting, scheduled to be held at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland on April 15-16, "had to be postponed after the IOC-recognised representatives of the Indian Olympic Association, VK Malhotra and Randhir Singh, and the sports ministry failed to come to a consensus on the Sports Code." In a letter to the Sports Minister Jitendra Singh, acting IOA President Malhotra said that "the meeting with the IOC officials will have no significance until and unless the government clarifies its stand on the Sports Code, which amounted to the violation of the Olympic Charter" (PTI, 4/3).
