We all know that the All India Chess Federation is divided into two factions, one led by Bharat Singh Chauhan and the other one by P.R. Venketrama Raja. The federation has been into doldrums on various issues and according to the present fettle, there is no hope that it will be back to where it was until and unless elections will take place. Now in the latest episode, the faction headed by BS Chauhan raised objections against the candidature of PR Venketrama Raja and RM Dongre, who have filed nominations for president and secretary, respectively. The Chauhan camp argues that Raja and Dongre are not elected members of any state association. They add that according to the National Sports Development Code, this makes them ineligible to contest in the elections. On the other hand, the Raja faction said that Nowhere is it mentioned that only elected members of state associations can contest AICF elections. This is another attempt by the other group to disrupt proceedings.
