Archery federation members pose full confidence in Arif Hasan

LAHORE -The Pakistan Archery Federation (PAF) expressed full confidence in President of the federation Lt Gen (r) Syed Arif Hasan here at an emergency General Council meeting held at POA House on Tuesday. The meeting was presided over by Syed Arif Hasan and was attended by representatives of seven out of eight units of the federation. The participants strongly condemned the illegal meeting convened by PAF Secretary Wisal Muhammad in Peshawar on Nov 10 and demanded the apology from him. If he fails to do so, a formal inquiry will be held against Wisal during the PAF General Council meeting on Nov 11. He said the purpose of calling the emergency meeting was to discuss the spread of negative propaganda against the federation for the last few days. “Seven out of eight units expressed their confidence in me for which I am grateful to all of them.” He said the election of Punjab Archery Association was not held due to which its representation wasn’t allowed in the meeting. He said it has been decided to carry out archery activities in full swing in 2021 for which a schedule will be issued soon.
