IOC Fixes Dates For Joint Meeting With Indian Olympic Association
The IOC has fixed the dates of the joint meeting with the Indian Olympic Association and Sports Ministry in the second week of next month to "find a way towards resolving the issues that led to the country’s ban from the Olympic family," according to the PTI. The IOC said that the joint meeting could be held on April 11, 12, 13 or 16 at its headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. Last week, the IOC had asked the IOA in a letter to "fix the dates of the joint meeting before the end of this month." But, it has been learned that former IOA Chief V.K. Malhotra had "sought time and requested for the meeting to be held next month" (PTI, 3/14).
