Suresh Kalmadi Has Declined Olympic Body Post, Says Lawyer

Suresh Kalmadi has declined the post of Life President of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), his lawyer told NDTV on Wednesday. Mr Kalmadi and Abhay Chautala, both politicians charged with corruption, were appointed as Life Presidents on Tuesday evening, leading to major controversy with the Union Sports Ministry warning that it will severties with the association unless they are removed. The IOA has defended the appointment saying it is "constitutionally a legitimate decision" and also emphasising that these are "honorary posts" and no executive authority will be given to Mr Kalmadi and Mr Chautala.
