New Delhi:

IOA President Suresh Kalmadi will meet Sports Minister MS Gill on Wednesday to appeal to the minister to take hockey back as a priority sport in the portfolio.

Indian hockey has been on a steady decline for a long time and the worst debacle came earlier this month, when the men's team failed to qualify for the Olympics.
