Bimal Kumar Chanda, President,
Indian Armwrestling Federation.
Fred Roy / Willy Deneumostier / Dave Devoto.
I am enclosing the resolution of Our IAF Congress held on 6th September, 2003
(only the related portion to you) for your necessary action. We have conducted
our 27th Sr. National Armwrestling championship from 4th to 6th September, 2003
at Gauhati University Auditorium, Guwahati, Assam, where our 22 affiliated state
General Secretary were present and gave their support to fight against Mr. B. B.
Das. Mr. B. B. Das also conducted National Championship in Kerala state where
only 4 or 5 state were present out of our 28 Affiliated States. You can very
well understand that the Dictatorship of Mr. B. B. Das has gone. He is nobody of
our Executive Committee. So how can he be the General Secretary of WAF when he
has been thrown out from his own country. Presently which country he represents
in WAF ??? At present he is making his own group by the members whom we never
gave shelter in our federation. Resolution are :-
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Dated:-6th September, 03.
" We, the undersigned, bonafide members of Indian Armwrestling Federation, Head
office at 24/3, P. Majumder Road, P.O. Haltu, Kolkata-700078, India, would like
to mention here that on 25th November, 2001 we had a General Body meeting of our
federation at our Head Office and elected an Executive Committee, Headed by
Mr. Bimal Kumar Chanda as President of new committee, by the members present in
the meeting and also by Proxy vote. Thereafter confirmed the same by all of us.
We have full confidence and support on Mr. Bimal Kumar Chanda as President of
Indian Armwrestling Federation and to continue for full terms up to December,
But all of a sudden we received a circular from General Secretary, Asian
Armsport Federation that our President Mr. Bimal Kumar Chanda has been
de-recognized. We confirm that the action taken by Asian Armsport Federation is
illegal and we all have vehemently protested the action during our General Body
meeting held on 9th July, 2002 at Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi where Mr. B. B.
Das was present and he was unable to give any positive reply. We compelled him
to leave the meeting along with his second Daughter. We also protested Mr. B. B.
Das's undemocratic action to form a New Executive committee of our federation
without proper meeting & permission of our elected committee, when he is not the
member of our Executive committee.
We have conducted our 27th Sr. National Armwrestling championships (Men & Women)
at B.K.B.Auditorium, Gauhati University Complex, Guwahati Assam from 4th to 6th
September, 2003 and all our Affiliated states have participated. In our IAF
Congress, we have decided not to participate in any game organized by Mr. B. B.
Das as we do not recognize him as one of the member of our Executive Committee

You can very well understand the present position of Mr. B.B. Das. We are also
at a loss how Dr.Gargi Das became General Secretary of Asian Federation when she
was never been in any position in our Executive committee. Please let me know
whether the posts in Asian Fedn. & World Fedn could be inherited ??? Please
note that nobody should be given any post in WAF if he/she do not possess any
post of Executive committee of their respective country. Hope you have got the
clear picture now. Please revert to your suggestion. Thanks.
Bimal Kumar Chanda, President, Indian Armwrestling Federation.
