Srinagar, July 7: National and International Footballers Forum (NIFF) has termed J&K Football Association (JKFA) a confusing body issuing contradictory statements.
“In their last statement JKFA termed NIFF as a group of people from SMC, J&K Forest , JK Bank, SFA and few more teams and today they are denying their own statements by saying NIFF is a B team of SFA. This is mere frustration and panic going around JKFA office bearers who have no tolerance of hearing the voices of players, clubs whom they have voted for. Before going for any press release in future they should sit down together and resolve what to write and what not to avoid any confusion among themselves, ” NIFF statement said.
NIFF has also lashed out at JKFA regarding it’s statement issued for clarifying about funds provided to a private club.
“In another statement issued by JKFA regarding one private club about the funds which they have received from JKFA terming that the funds were actually released by Sports Council not by JKFA. NIFF will like to reveal that if Sports Council had to release grant to any private club why would they divert it through any agency. Govt has been financially supporting RKFC directly on qualifying into main I-League which is a huge achievement . They have not diverted their financial assistance grant from football association. It is a mere lie to divert the attention from their wrongdoings and frauds, “.
“We all are aware from the past two years President & DFA President are running this private club at the cost of association funds which is meant for development and players betterment not to appease any private company for own benefits. It was also in agenda of Ex Co meeting of JKFA which was held in Dec 2019 at Jammu, to ratify the amount of ₹15lacs given to that particular club and today they are denying the same, ” NIFF statement said.
NIFF has termed JKFA a body of lies which is issuing false statements.
“JKFA has become a factory of lies and are issuing false statements on daily basis to cover up their frauds, violations and unconstitutional workings. One famous International Footballer in live interview yesterday apologized for carring fake details of his achievements on social media by DFA President. This shows the truthfulness they carry in their statements and details which is sheer attempt to mislead the people. He also revealed that NIFF members were front runners in the association. And now their resignation from JKFA is a answer to many questions that why would football personalities like them who are owned by AIFF and respected all over the country quited JKFA?? He also admitted that football teams and clubs who were huge in numbers have drastically fallen down to few numbers now, ” Statement further said.
“Those who are attending ongoing meetings of JKFA from Districts are party to the frauds and fake accounts they have submitted in Mufti Memorial and Khelo India funds, using the same funds for enjoying lavish parties which should have been spent on matches and activities, ” JKFA statement.
