74-kg freestyle wrestler would have clinched the silver medal had he taken part in the Rio Olympics instead of being banned for four years by the CAS "Narsingh would have won at least a silver medal I can assure you that" said WFI secretary V N Prasood on the sidelines of a press conference to announce a world level prize money event Narsingh was exonerated on doping charges at home by NADA which upheld his claim that his food/drink during his stay while training for the Games at Sonepat in Haryana had been spiked with the banned substance which he had injected File photo of Narsingh Yadav Getty World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) challenged the clean chit given to Narsingh by its Indian affiliate at the Court of Arbitration for Sports in Rio a day before he was set to take part in his weight class bouts CAS threw him out of the Games and also slapped a four-year ban on the Indian grappler after he failed to produce any "real evidence" regarding the sabotage theory he had presented In its ruling the ad hoc panel of the CAS relied on expert evidence that Narsingh’s dope offence was not due to one-time ingestion of the prohibited substance and its concentration in the first test result (of 25 June) was so high that it had to come from an oral ingestion of one or two tablets of methandienone rather than from a drink where the powder had been mixed with water Explaining the chronology of events leading to his ban Prasood said "On 18 August Narsingh gave a medical at noon and had his weight-in at 130 pm His name was even there in the fixtures At 830 pm in the night CAS released their judgement "CAS told him give your weight don’t worry about anything in the afternoon we’ll give a result at night So why should we have been thinking about it (ban)" asked Prasood when reporters questioned him on the matter "That’s when we actually thought that after 21st they will take any action (that) if they want to punish they will take away medal if Narsingh had won any medal" he said "The judgment was unexpected If only they had given this verdict earlier we could have sent Praveen Rana" he said Prasood defended WFI by saying Narsingh had been cleared to take part by the Indian Olympic Association International Olympic Committee and world wrestling body United World Wrestling before he was sent on the flight to Rio "There is no fault on part of the federation NADA is the final authority on doping in India they gave Narsingh clearance WADA didn’t directly do anything against our wrestler they appealed to CAS "UWW gave its nod for Narsingh’s participation IOC gave its approval After getting these two approvals how could we have stopped Narsingh from going to Rio "We didn’t send Narsingh with our other wrestlers as we were waiting for WADA to make a move But they didn’t do anything If WADA wanted to appeal why didn’t they appeal before 10th "How many days does WADA have to appeal On 2 August we had a result from NADA inside 24 hours WADA received the result Narsingh left the country for Rio on 10th WADA didn’t do a thing against Narsingh until the 13th They filed an appeal on 13th federation didn’t get any information till the 16th" he elaborated "We even named Praveen Rana as a replacement just in case Narsingh would have some issues going" he said adding "Someone from India informed WADA that NADA only cleared Narsingh due to political pressure That’s why WADA appealed "If we had sent Praveen Rana instead and he had lost earlier the media only would have questioned me that why Narsingh wasn’t sent despite getting clearance" he said Giving another twist to the episode Prasood said the banned drug found in Narsingh’s system was generally taken by people in their fifties to gain weight "This is not a drug to be used by an athlete It’s a drug taken by people who are over 55 years of age to gain body weight Narsingh is already 76 kgs and he participates in the 74kg category Why will he use it" the WFI secretary wondered adding it indicated that he was "intentionally given the drug by someone" "NADA told us they got information on 4 July that Narsingh was using a banned substance But they still haven’t sent the federation a copy of the letter" Prasood said WFI has demanded a CBI inquiry into the Narsingh doping issue and Prasood explained why the wrestling federation wanted the police case to be handed over to the central investigating agency "In India when an FIR is filed action has to be taken in 90 days That’s what the Constitution of India says But CAS said we don’t want your Constitution Haryana Police has not arrested anyone that’s why we’re urging the CBI to probe the matter" he said "We’ll also take action if Narsingh is found guilty Otherwise we’ll appeal if the police can find the culprit and the court finds him guilty We’ll act after a court action "If someone is arrested and action is taken against them the ban (by CAS) can be reduced" he added Two-time Olympic medal winner Sushil Kumar had moved the court after WFI had refused a trial bout between him and Narsingh after the latter had earned a quota place for the country but the WFI official queered the pitch by saying Rana had stood second in pre-Games trial behind the shamed wrestler "Sushil Kumar is a great wrestler He knew all procedures Praveen Rana was second in trial after Narsingh so he would have taken us to court if we had named Sushil as a standby for Narsingh" was the strange explanation given by Prasood when queried why Sushil was not made a standby Sushil won bronze and silver medals in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games but WFI preferred Narsingh to represent India in the 74-kg weight class instead of the decorated grappler as the dope-tainted grappler had clinched the country’s quota by winning the bronze at

won a great personal victory Now her party will have to look for a new partner The success of Chancellor Angela Merkels Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and its Bavarian allythe Christian Social Union (CSU)in Sundays election to the German parliament by a large and historic margin was a victory foretold Opinion polls had consistently shown her party to be far ahead of the Social Democratic Party (SPD)which ended up with 257 per cent of the votefar below the 415 per cent for Merkels CDU-CSU But despite this stunning victoryMerkels party fell five seats short of an absolute majority As a consequenceironicallydespite having won this resounding victoryMerkel is likely to have to share office with her main electoral adversaryPeer Steinbrück of the SPD The prospect of shared power in a grand coalition with the conservatives is one that few Social Democrats relishfor this is likely to damage their long-term credibility as a real alternative to the freshly anointed Merkel Nor are fresh elections necessarily a better alternative for themfor this will quite likely give her an absolute majority Soeven as the search is on for coalition partnersfaute de mieuxa CDU-SPD grand coalition is the most likely outcome Like IndiaGermany is a federal state with a multi-party systemwith two major partiesthe CDU and the SPDand a motley crew of smaller onesincluding the Green Partythe Linke (the Left) and the Alternative for Germany (AfD)a eurosceptic movement turned into a partyand the CSU (the CDUs sister party based in Bavaria) Howeverunlike Indiathe electoral system is based on proportional representationand parties that do not manage to get at least 5 per cent of the vote are not allocated any seats at all The polls on Sunday dealt a fatal blow to the liberals of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) whichhaving lost many voters to the AfDhas failed to meet the 5 per cent threshold As suchwhile Merkel has won a great personal victoryher party will have to look for a new partnerwhichgiven the current constellation of partiesis most likely to be the SPD Two leading contenders for power forming a ruling coalition in peacetime would be inconceivable in the British or Indian contextbut such is the emphasis on stability in the politics of postwar Germany that a grand coalition consisting of adversaries is not considered an abnormal outcome Steinbrückthe SPD leaderwasas a matter of facta successful finance minister in the first grand coalition government (2005-09) led by Merkel as chancellor If this grand coalition formsthere is likely to be a leftwards shift in terms of domestic policy compared to the previous government Germany will most likely continue its approach on the EU (short-term austerity instead of long-term structural reforms) and refocus its attention on domestic issues like reforming the energy sectorthe nuclear plant phase-outrenewable energyincreasing labour supply and addressing its immigration policy Merkel has handled the global economic crisis with great dexteritybalancing stability and austerity with social justice Thusfor exampleduring the last days before the electionsshe was able to speak almost exclusively on social issues and sustainable development a theme normally the domain of centre-left or ecological parties The elections drew great attention all over Europe due to Germanys leading position in the EU
