Supreme court has permitted the womens hockey team to participate in the womens hockey world cup in Argentina from August 29.The goverment suffered a setback as there plea was rejected to take control over the game.
The bench comprisng of justice RV Ravindran and H Gokhale rejected ministrys plea to grant them some more time to explain factual position about teams composition.
It passed the orders after the govermnt failed to produce any written documents to substantiate there claims.Meanwhile the court orders are just temporary.
This diplmatic tussle between Hockey India,Indian Olympic Association and goverment has just led to the suffering of players.The women hockey team that has shown great grit and determination in the recent past despite of all the controversies surrounding it must have heaved a great sigh of relief.
Whatever the tussle is but the players should not be barred in anyways in participating in any events that hampers there growth and demeans countrys image.
