ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) is likely going to impose an ad-hoc on the Athletics Federation of Pakistan (AFP) for violating the National Sports Policy (NSP) by electing its president and secretary back-to-back for third time on September 13, 2009. A source inside the PSB told The Nation here Wednesday that the AFP had elected Lt Gen (Retd) Safdar Hussain president while Khalid Mehmood secretary of the federation for third term. The National Sports Policy does not allow any person to get the office of president or secretary of any federation for third time. The NSP was approved by Federal cabinet in 2005 for the next four years," he maintained. He further said that on September 16, 2009, Federal Minister for Sports Pir Aftab Hussain Shah Jillani, as the president PSB suspended the grant of the AFP on poor performance. "The high ups are compiling a charge sheet against the athletics federation to strengthen their stance for taking the ugly step of imposing ad hoc on the AFP. Minister of Sports has already written a letter to the AFP for seeking the performance report of the national athletes in the international competitions," he viewed. "According to the constitution of the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB), the PSB can impose ad-hoc on any federation after the approval of its president federal minister for sports. A delegation of the AFP met with the federal minister before Eid-ul-Fitr and assured the minister to remove the faults, which was raised by the observer of the PSB during the election proceeding. But, the high ups of the ministry are not satisfied with the version of the AFP officials," he added. "The AFP also violated its own constitution by holding the elections without resolving the issues of Sindh and NWFP. The AFP was bound to complete the election process of the technical association of the AFP at-least three months prior to the elections. The PSB representative Muhammad Azam Dar hinted out these issues during the elections but the former army man did not pay any attention to these constitutional issues," he said.
