Kolkata: The forthcoming I League can take place even after the Delhi High Court order; feels AIFF Senior Vice President Subrata Dutta. There isn't any problem with hosting of these two leagues. As far as ISL is concerned, it can go on as per its schedule and this order shouldn't have any effect on the league's operations since it is owned by IMG-Reliance, Star Sports and the AIFF combined, so Patel's axe shouldn't have any effect on operations and the important decisions of the league.

As far as I League is concerned, most of the committees concerning the League are nominated. According to Mr Subrata Dutta, “I think in my opinion those committees which were not formed by members who were elected can be able to function. The committees concerning the I League such as the League committee, licensing committee, Disciplinary committee can continue to function as the members are mostly nominated.”

Talking about the options left with the All India Football Federation, Mr Dutta feel, “The AIFF has two options opened in front of them, either to conduct the elections once again within five months, having Dr SY Qureshi as the returning officer. The other options I think we can go to the apex court and appeal for a stay order. We have to take legal advice and act accordingly.”

On being asked whether the order of the Delhi High Court come as a blow for the Federation, the AIFF senior vice President answered in negative.

“It is not a blow to AIFF really but it will definitely disrupt the day to day operations. We are confident that we have done our best in following the National Sports Code and the constitution which is approved by FIFA. We are also ready to correct ourselves if inadvertently we have made any mistakes.”

AIFF last year in December conducted its elections. Before conducting its elections the AIFF had vacated a stay order to conduct its elections. The elections were conducted according to the constitution of the AIFF which was approved by FIFA, National Sports Code and the Register of Societies in Mumbai.

“The AIFF had conducted the elections in a fair manner. We had not violated any rules and regulations in conducting the elections. But the Honourable Delhi High Court today declared the elections null and void. We are awaiting the copy of the order following which we will decide on the future course of action. We will take legal advice and act accordingly,” said Mr Subrata Dutta.
