Acting President) V K Malhotra has allowed himself to come under pressure. He should have asserted himself and cleared the mess. He will now be responsible for whatever decision IOC takes. It will be a real shame is IOA is suspended", he said.
K P S Gill said that the IOA must clean itself up first and all other problems could be resolved later.
"IOA must clean itself first. Everything else comes later. All sorts of unsavoury characters are there in IOA, you can't make any progress because of such persons", he said.
Gill, who is now the IHF patron, was also critical of the two IOA delagates who will go to Lausanne to discuss the issue with IOC officials.
"These people have no record of doing anything for the promotion of sports. They have have violated guidelines for their own interest in the past. They don't have the credibility", he said referring to the two members Narinder Batra and R K Anand.
