‘Good kabaddi players being ignored’

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: The Kabaddi Kridapattugala Horata Samiti has accused the Karnataka Rajya Amateur Kabaddi Association of indulging in fraud and not giving a chance to good kabaddi players to come up in the game.

Gopalappa, former Indian team captain, said that competitive kabaddi had stagnated in the State thanks to the association. “They are giving blank certificates of recognition to people who have never played for the State. The association refuses to recognise genuine teams that have the potential of representing the State at the national level because of vested interests,” he alleged.

He said that the association had conducted a State-level referees’ examination at Mangalore in 2003 for which 30 persons had appeared. Despite 20 persons passing the examination, none of them had received their certificates till date. “There are 110 kabaddi clubs in the State of which only 30 are active. Though many players have never taken part in major championships, they are given participation certificates by the association,” said Subbaraju, former Asian Games kabbadi player.
