Birendra Prasad Baishya named as observer for London Olympics

Dilemma over selection of the Chef de Mission of the Indian Contingent for the London Olympic for last few months ended on Monady as the selection committee of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has named Olympian Ajit Pal Singh for this post. The IOA constituted a seven member panel to decide on this subject unable to come to conclusion between vice-President IOA Tarlochan Singh and the President of Indian Weightlifting Federation Birendra Prasad Baishya. With an unexpected step IOA has decided to appoint the captain of the hockey team that won the World Cup in 1975, and keep both Tarlochan Singh and B P Baiahya as observer. There will be three observers for Indian delegation to London Olympic and remaining one post is yet to be announced.
