Sports mafia gets spouses, relatives appointed on fake certificates
SRO 349 turning out to be cruel fraud

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Nov 24: Already deprived of adequate incentives, the genuine sportspersons of the state are becoming victims of fraud and deceit of a deep rooted nexus between sports mafia, comprising of certain sports associations and officials of the State Sports Council and losing opportunities of recruitment into government job to fraud certificate holders.
Sources disclosed that implementation of the SRO that aims at recruiting 25 outstanding sportspersons into government jobs every year, has turned out to be a cruel fraud against genuine sportspersons and the notorious sports mafia has misused the benevolent SRO to get their relatives, including wives, sisters, brothers and distant relatives recruited into government jobs on fake certificates.
A sportsperson, aspiring for a government job through the SRO this year disclosed pleading anonymity that at least 40 percent of the candidates who had applied for the 75 backlog posts, process for which was underway, were fraud. "Many of them are carrying certificates of gold and silver medals in national championships in games which they have never even seen" said the sportsperson, expressing anguish. "I managed to win a silver medal in the national championships twice after years of hard work and training, but one of the applicants has a certificate of national gold medal, which has been procured by him fraudulently, in connivance with his association and stands before me in the merit" he added.
Insiders divulged that while office bearers of some defaulter associations were playing with the careers of genuine sportspersons by securing fraudulent certificates of merit for their relatives, the policy paralysis on part of the Sports Council, which screens and scrutinizes such applications, is equally responsible for complete lack of transparency in the selection of genuinely meritorious sportsperson.
"Sports Council does not have any mechanism to ascertain the merit of the sports persons and compare their achievements. Council does not differentiate Olympic and recognized disciplines from the unrecognized ones when it comes to screening and as a result unrecognized games are treated at par with Olympic disciplines" said another aspiring sportsman. "Many office bearers of such sports associations got medals in the names of their spouses and got them government jobs, even though they have not even remote idea of the sport" he added.
While J&KSSC has constituted a committee to scrutinize the applications and certificates of aspirants who have applied for 75 backlog posts, many genuine sportspersons are demanding vigilance inquiry into the matter to expose the sports mafia who are playing with the lives and careers of genuine sportspersons of the state.
