New Delhi: National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) president  Raninder Singh feels that the recent decision taken by the Governing Body, to ban certain Shooters from the next Nationals for disciplinary reasons should be put on hold. 

In a meeting held last week, the Governing Body of the NRAI had banned the following 15 Shooters from taking part in the next Nationals, for breach of discipline;.

Sriharsha R. Devaraddi,  Keshav Sharma,  Vikram Bhati,  Imroz Ahmed,  Pratyush  Barik,   Yashaswini Deswal,  Tarun Dahiya,  Meenal Yadav. Tejpreet K Oberoi,               Dilpreet Singh,  Rajeev Ranjan,   Visnu  Pandian,  Krishan Kumar,  Jyothi Sannakki,            Ishank Ahuja

In a statement on Monday Raninder Singh said  he would persuade the General Body of the Association scheduled to meet on March 5,  to stay the decision taken by the Governing Body, to ban 15 Shooters . 

Invoking powers vested on him as President, he  said, “It has always been our endeavor to act in the best interests of our Sport and our Shooters. As such, no one is as pained as us when at times severe action is needed to be taken on anyone belonging to the Shooting fraternity, most of all, on our dear Shooters. 

I received several requests from the parents and the affected Shooters themselves on the recent decision taken by the Governing Body. As such I have decided to refer the decision to the General Body, scheduled to meet early next month, and persuade them to not implement the said decision. 

However, this will certainly be a one-off, and any such disciplinary breach, will not be tolerated in the future.” He added
