NEW DELHI: Indian Olympic Association has decided not to sack its tainted president Suresh Kalmadi, who has not formally resigned from the post yet, according to media reports on Friday.
Faced with intense pressure from the IOC to act against Kalmadi, the IOA's Executive Board meets on Friday to decide the fate of its tainted president.
The acting president of IOA, Vijay Kumar Malhotra, will continue to head the body.
Indian Olympic Association secretary general Randhir Singh said that the IOA has not taken any decision to boycott the Games.
"IOA has not taken any such decision. We don't want the athletes to suffer. We are here for the interest of the athletes. Athletes have been training for so many years, we have not taken any such decision," said Singh.
The IOC has written three letters to the IOA, threatening to act on its own if the national sports apex body does not explain what action it was planning to take against Kalmadi who is facing corruption charges related to the Commonwealth Games.
