Clean Sports India, a movement for corruption-free sports in the country, on Friday wrote to the IOC, accusing acting Indian Olympic Association President V.K. Malhotra "of protecting corrupt and inefficient system under the garb of 'autonomy,'" according to the PTI. In a letter to IOC President Jacques Rogge, CSI convenor B.V.P. Rao and President Ashwini Nachappa questioned Malhotra's plea to the IOC that the "Government of India is hell bent on destroying the autonomy of IOA and National Sports Federations." CSI's letter to the IOC "also highlighted how the corrupt and inefficient system has produced several tainted officials like Suresh Kalmadi, Lalit Bhanot and Chautala brothers -- Abhay Singh Chautala and Ajay Singh Chautala." CSI "has also requested the IOC to send a high level delegations to India to study the ground situation by meeting all stake holders" (PTI, 4/5).
