Mohun Bagan threaten not to form team

Kolkata:

National League champions Mohun Bagan have decided not to form a team for the forthcoming football season unless the dissident group in the club withdraws all the court cases. "We are ready to face any consequence for this decision, but the committee wants to get rid of these hassles once and for all," the club's general secretary Anjan Mitra said.The decision of not forming a team was taken by the club's executive committee, which met here yesterday, and was mainly seen as a pressure tactic to force the dissidents to withdraw the cases which have been pending for quite some time.Stating that the executive committee would not revoke its decision under any circumstances, Mitra admitted that it may hurt sentiments of the club supporters, but the committee had no other choice. "I am sure that all our members and fans will understand the circumstances," he said.The dissidents in the club have filed three cases against the ruling committee. While one case has challenged the elections held in 1992, another has been filed to stop the club's efforts to create the McDowell-Mohun Bagan company for the football team. The third case deals with club accounts.Mitra said that it was not possible for the club to concentrate on football due to the court cases. (PTI)
