Sandeep Jajodia removed as President of Boxing India
Sandeep Jajodia was removed as the President of Boxing India(BI) after he lost a No-Confidence Motion by a massive 2-55 margin in a Special General Meeting(SGM), held on Sunday. Jajodia took over as the President in September last year after elections monitored by the International Boxing Association.
Ahead of the SGM, the secretary of BI, Jay Kowli also put in his papers on Saturday night, after he failed to find any allies in either of the rebel group, consisting of a majority of 31 state units. There were expectations of him also losing his job during the No-Confidence Motion, which was going to be presented against him and Jajodia.
Confirming the news of his resignation, a source said that Kowli had no options left.
“He resigned last night. There was no other option for him," the source said.
Kowli’s working relationship with Jajodia had gone from bad to worse in the last couple of months and the rebel group cited that as a major reason to pass the No-Confidence Motion against the two officials.
The last nail in the coffin, as far as their working relationship was concerned, was Kowli allegedly forging Jajodia’s signature in a routine letter to the Asian Boxing Federation earlier this year.
That incident led to Jajodia declaring to the fellow members of the BI that he could no longer work with Kowli.
