World over there is craze for sports and success in sports.

In most of the sports money involved is too big to be ignored.In such environment and juicy returns, the India Politicians would not like to miss the God sent golden opportunity.Why should they, this is one way of Desh Seva they are committed to.
It is not surprising that most of the sports bodies are headed by a Politician even though they may have not actually played that game ,as long as they know how to play the real game(?).
Listed below are some of the sports bodies headed by our Desh Sevaks.

Cricket in India is almost a religion.Hence it has maximum bhaktas.

Sharad Pawar is the boss at BCCI, said to be the richest sports body in the world.

Sharad Pawar also heads Maharashtra Cricket Association.

Sharad Pawar is expected to head the ICC soon.

Rajeev Shukla is a very important functionary of the BCCI.

Can you keep Lallu away ?Lallu heads cricket Association of Bihar.

Bihar is said to have another cricket association .It headed by BJP’s Kirti Azad.

Arun Jaitley is an important boss at Delhi Cricket Association.

Jagdish Tytler is the President of the JUDO federation of India(yes judo)

The very popular Suresh Kalmadi is the president of all powerful and influential The India Olympic Association.

Abhay Chautala is the head of the Table Tennis Association.

Ajay Chautala is the head of the Boxing Association.

Yashwant Sinha is the President of the All India Lawn Tennis Association

Sukdev Dhidsa is the President of Cycling Federation of India(yes cycling)

Digvijay Singh is the President of The Shooting Federation

Priyanjan Das Munshi is the President of Football Association of India.

Praful Patel is the vice-president of AIFF.

There are so many more politicians involved with “developing” sports in the country.We all must stand up and salute them.
We have voted these people to govern this country,try and solve our problems,worry about the basic needs of the poor,worry about our internal and external security issues,look at the economy etc.

But here we have all these people wanting to sit as the heads of the sports bodies.At times one wonders as to what could be the incentive for them to occupy these positions.?Since all these netas are from influential parties,there is no doubt that their party wants control over sports without actually being held accountable for the state of affairs of a particular sport.
Can we not find committed sports persons who will actually work for the welfare of the sport and the players?
Your opinion
