All India Football Federation General Secretary Kushal Das resigned from his post on ‘health grounds’, finishing his 12-year span which was often ruined with controversies.
Das, who was recruited to the top post in 2010, has been on leave since 20th of June on health grounds, though many in football circles stated he was kept out of his role by the Committee of Administrators on other grounds.
“Yes, he has resigned on health grounds,” one source notified on conditions of anonymity.
Das sent the resignation to the CoA which is presently running Indian football following the Praful Patel led system was expelled by the Supreme Court for not holding elections on time.
Das’ spell as AIFF General Secretary roughly clashes with that Patel’s presidency.
The Comptroller and Auditor General recently ordered audit of accounts of the AIFF for the period clashing with Patel’s span.
Das was also held for questioning of alleged molestation of employees at workplace though the AIFF’s integrity officer has given him a clean chit.
