New Delhi, Dec 7 (IBNS) The Indian Boxing Federation (IABF) is willing to host fresh elections to get the suspension imposed on it by the world body and the sports ministry lifted at the earliest.
IABF chairman Abhay Singh Chautala and president Abhishek Matoria said they were willing to quit their posts and pave the way for a fresh election.
They are ready to walk an extra mile to satisfy the international federation and the sports ministry in lifting the suspension they imposed on the national body.
The AIBA and the ministry suspended the IABF after suspecting manipulation in the Sept 23 election process.
Young Rajasthan legislator Matoria took over as the president while his brother-in-law Chautala got himself elevated creating the new post of chairman.
Chautala said rules were not violated.
"The election was held in the presence of retired judges and government observers. But, if the AIBA and the government feel the process was manipulated, we are ready for a re-election. I am ready to quit the post of chairman. AIBA and the government can send their observers and fix a fresh date," said Chautala.
