If tomorrow something is wrong in the constitution which is provided, there are two people who can object to it, me and Bhaskar Ganguly.

“All the states and the stakeholders were on the same page on the constitution. There was no opposition at all. We will look over the comments given by the fans and stakeholders, compile them together and submit it to the Supreme Court,” said Bajaj.

“A Big battle has been won today, the modification of the Constitution is almost 80% done today. Another main objective of the CoA is to make sure that the AIFF elections take place. It is the need of the hour that the democratically elected officials take over their posts as soon as possible. We have to ensure that the elections take place soon,” Bajaj concluded.

Quraishi could not attend the meeting in person as he was not keeping well, but followed the proceedings virtually. Quraishi had said that a newly-elected body of the AIFF should be in place by September end and a modified constitution will be submitted to the Supreme Court by July 15.

The Supreme Court had on May 18 appointed a three-member CoA to manage the affairs of the AIFF and form its constitution in line with the National Sports Code and model guidelines.

The CoA will brief the FIFA delegation about its willingness to complete the task assigned to them by the top court within the stipulated time. A FIFA delegation is set to visit the country from June 21-23.

As per the timeline set by the court, a draft AIFF constitution prepared by the CoA in line with the National Sports Code must be circulated among the stakeholders and their feedback sent to CoA counsel Samar Bansal by June 30. The CoA must place the constitution before SC by July 15. The next hearing is on July 21.
