No more fights: Kalmadi and Fennell

Putting an end to the great Indian tamasha, 2010 Games Organizing Committee (OC) chairman Suresh Kalmadi and Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President Michael Fennell have decided to put aside their differences and work together as partners to host the Games next October.

Kalmadi had earlier objected to Fennell’s decision to set up a monitoring committee for the 2010 Games and demanded the recall of CGF chief executive Mike Hooper, saying ‘he is of little help’ to the OC.

After the Queen’s Baton Relay Thursday, both Kalmadi and Fennell met and sorted out their differences. They also agreed to refrain from making comments about each other.

In a joint statement the two said: ‘It is agreed that there have been misunderstandings and unfortunate media statements and reports that have created a regrettable set of circumstances. We have agreed that we will continue to work together as partners, fully recognizing and respecting our individual roles and ensuring that our attention is not diverted from meeting all the targets that have been agreed upon.’

‘The next step will be the visit of the CGF Co-ordination Commission (COCOM) commencing December 14 for evaluating the progress and the achievement of the targets promised by the OC. The review report will be considered by CGF and OC,’ the statement said.
