Confirmed. Ganga sacked

The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) has sacked its honorary secretary-general, P. Ganga Rao.

BAM president Datuk Nadzmi Mohd Salleh said the dismissal would take effect immediately and that Ganga Rao would no longer involve with the BAM.

"I would like to assure that the decision will not affect the preparations for the Thomas Cup in May," he said in a statement Monday.

Nadzmi gave no reason for the termination but earlier newsreports indicated that the association was disappointed with Ganga Rao's decision pertaining to a sponsorship deal which the association claimed to be beyond his scope of duties.

Meanwhile, Ganga Rao said he was not surprised by the decision taken by the country's badminton governing body.

Ganga Rao, when contacted from Singapore, said the BAM had yet to inform him about his sacking. "I've had enough. I don't want to think about it anymore," he said.

Ganga Rao said he might take action against those responsible for his sacking but would only do so after the Thomas Cup on May 9-16 as he did not want to jeopardise the national squad's preparations.

  1. Dear Fair Play,

    Why was Ganga sacked la. What did he do wrong for BAM to remove him so abruptly. This Nadzmi chap does he know what he is doing? To sack a person without attibuting any reason would lead common people to think that Ganga has done some dastardly wrong so henious and serious that calls for his immediate removal. It is almost defamatory and will certainly damage Ganga reputation.
    BAM will have to come clean on this and state what serious wrong Ganga did.If indeed you have proof that he is a corrupted person doing side deal with ING , just say it out. As far as I am concern, you must give reasons.
    As for the BAM official please don't parrot that it is the President prerogative, you chaps are the Council members and all of you are collectively responsible of the decision of BAM. You cannot diassociate yourselves and say it is the President prerogative.
    You chaps are behaving like the OCM Board, leaving everthing to the SEC GEN. with no role to play.
    If there is a wrong, you are duty bound to raised the matter. Now do what is right.
