Ad-hoc committee for chess

The National Sports Council (NSC) is going to dissolve the executive committee of the Bangladesh Chess Federation in a couple of days as the NSC has reportedly sent a proposal for 26-member ad-hoc committee to the sports ministry for the final approval.
The existing committee led by general secretary Jamiluddin expired on September 5 and the government is all set to disband the committee under section 20 of the NSC 1974 act instead of holding election, said a source inside the NSC.
There was whisper in the sports arena that Mokaddes Hossain, father of national chess player Farzana Hossain Annie and junior champion Abdullah Al Saif, is set to become the general secretary of the ad-hoc committee.
Earlier, some 26 chess players including three GMs requested the ministry to hold a free and fair election in the greater interest of chess development after a section of players including Grandmaster Niaz Morshed urged the authority to form an ad-hoc committee for a change.
