Bombay Gold Cup on, says Kehar Singh, MHA Secy (4/7/2009)

7 April, 2009: Bombay Gold Cup on, says Commander Kehar Singh, MHA Secretary

"Bombay Gold Cup scheduled to start on April 15th is definitely on, no question of it not being held", asserts Commander Kehar Singh, Secretary, Mumbai Hockey Association, who orgnizes the prestigious tournament.

"Yes, the adhoc committee wanted us clarification, more information that we have given them. It does not mean the competition is cancelled or deferred, it is on", said Kehar Singh reacting to the protest seemingly raised by a section of the MHA members.

On asked whether the court had not prevented holding of the Bombay Cup -- a section of MHA who have gone to court has claimed so -- the Commander gave an indication that the court verdict came in a couple of months ago. "We conducted various other competitions for various MHA's Division Leagues, around 109 matches. In fact, the verdict did not prevent us from contributing to the game, conducting these events. We are aware of the verdict, and we are within the parameters of that", he clarified.

"Why the court will bar us conducting only Grade I All India tournaments", he wondered.

Kehar Singh was the view that such a informed site as should not have published a wrong information without getting proper clarification at his end.

Note: The site last week published cancellation of the the Bombay Gold Cup based on the input from the Adhoc Committee sources and a couple of teams that are expected to participate in the tournament. If the Cup is held on time, we will come out with a regret note later. Meanwhile, we wish the organizers a successful tournament, as we in s2h believe events hockey should go on whatever the politics that transpire off the field.
