Headline: “Rules must be in favour of players”: Vijay Goel

Minister of State (I/C) for Youth Affairs and Sports Shri Vijay Goel has said, “Rules must be in favour of players”. “If rules are a hindrance, we might change the rules because they are dedicated for the passion of sports. In a statement on C.K Vineeth controversy here today, Shri Goel added, “A player has to play continuously and hence is unable to meet the mandatory guideline. I will speak to Kerala Chief Minister and Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) office in New Delhi to seek their intervention to accommodate this player and change the rules”. The Minister reiterated that the Government is always committed to the welfare of players and their overall conditions. “I shall monitor such cases”, he stated. Shri Goel has also said that if players face any issue, he/she can directly contact him for redressal of their issues. The order issued by the Principal Accounts General, Thiruvananthapuram stated that if Vineeth fails to join for duty immediately, his services would stand terminated with effect from May 7, 2016. “Probation period cannot be extended beyond double the normal period (two years). Under no circumstances can Vineeth’s probation be extended beyond four years and he has completed four years in service on May 6, 2106. Since he has not successfully completed the probation, his service has been terminated,” says the order, which was passed on Wednesday. ***HK/MB
