Chess News: AICF April 22 AGM was illegal, reckons FIDE president zone 3.7 RM Dongre

In a major blow to the Bharat Singh Chauhan faction, the Madras HC had passed an interim injunction against the AGM conducted on April 22 by the Mr. Bharat Singh Chauhan in which certain decisions like suspending Raja, forming a five-member committee to run AICF, issuing show-cause notices to key functionaries of the Raja group and disaffiliating the state associations of Himachal, West Bengal, Andhra, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra. Two other associations were given affiliation in Maharashtra and Rajasthan, while ad-hoc committees were constituted in the other three states. The order dated August 28 overrules these decisions. Although the ultimate winner will be known after elections, this is a setback for the faction led by secretary Bharat Singh Chauhan, who was removed from the post by Raja shortly before the online meeting.
