“Resentment was lodged many times against the poor functioning of JKFA by the majority of the registered Clubs in Srinagar and Jammu over incompetence of senior members of the association, who were holding the chair unconstitutionally and failed to lift the football,” one of the members, who tendered resignation here told UNI.
“Not even a single meeting of executive committee has been called since 2018 post elections and decisions were been being by a group of members only without the consent of the others,” he added and said that more people are expected to tender resignations in coming days. (UNI)
