LAHORE: President of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) Akhtar Rasool has made an enthusiastic speak to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to spare the national diversion, which the ex-Olympian burdens, confronts complete fall because of money related issues.

Earlier this month Pakistan's hockey chief Akhtar Rasool also handed in his resignation, saying, "I have resigned from the post for the best interests of the country and for the sake of our national sport."
The meeting was required to be called as per PHF Constitution after the resignation of Akhtar Rasool. Akhtar had tendered his resignation on August 19, accepting responsibility for the Olympics debacle, and on that very day Khalid was nominated as new PHF President by the PHF Chief Patron, the Prime Minister of Pakistan. The Congress also eulogised the services of Akhtar for running the national federation despite financial constraints. It was quite evident that the axe would fall only on Akhtar Rasool, while the real culprits like Mujahid would manage to save their skin. Akhtar Rasool was made scapegoat, while coach Shahnaz, who managed to help Pakistan play in three finals, was disheartened to tender his resignation for just one poor result. If the prime minister meets Brig Khokhar and ready to roll out funds to him, then what was Akhtar Rasool's fault, who kept on requesting the PM to give him time so that he might discuss with him the ways how to save sinking ship of Pakistan hockey and how to regain its lost glory, but he was deprived of issuance of funds. One thing is crystal clear that Brig Khaild just managed to get the hot seat because of his close relation with federal minister. He has no clear-cut plans to work for the betterment of hockey in general and players in particular and he is completely banking on government. When asked about how much funds he required immediately and from where he would arrange funds, the new PHF chief replied: "We need Rs 100 million to start work on projects and we are depending on government in the first phase and will work on generating funds through our own sources in the second phase. Khalid was nominated for the post of president on Aug 21 by the prime minister, who is also PHF patron-in-chief, in place of Akhtar Rasool who tendered his resignation recently. Shahnaz resigned while following in the footsteps of Akhtar Rasool who quit the post recently due to national team's shameful performance in Belgium, resulting in Pakistan - former world hockey giants - failing to make Olympics for the first time. The government has once again compromised merit while announcing retired Brigadier Khalid Sajjad Khokhar as the successor of Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) President, Akhtar Rasool, who was compelled to step down in the aftermath of hockey team's failure to qualify for 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Despite Pakistan's poor showing at Antwerp where the team finished eighth Akhtar was adamant not to quit, putting all the blame on the government for not providing sufficient funds. Akhtar had served as the PHF chief previously also and on both the occasions under Nawaz Sharif-led government.

LAHORE: President of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) Akhtar Rasool has made an enthusiastic speak to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to spare the national diversion, which the ex-Olympian burdens, confronts complete fall because of money related issues.
I don't need any service or some other office. I have all the enthusiasm to again lift our national banner on in global hockey, which has served the nation with around 65 gold, silver and bronze awards before," Akhtar, who captained Pakistan's 1982 World Cup-winning group, said while conversing with media on Friday. "I speak to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to make all essential strides as quickly as time permits to spare Pakistan hockey," encouraged Akhtar. In the wake of being chosen as PHF president in 2013, Akhtar said, he propelled fruitful endeavors to bring all prestigious Olympians at one stage, taking note of because of groupings among them the diversion had endured a great deal following 2008. "Because of the PHF endeavors, Shahnaz Sheik, Islahuddin Siddiqi and numerous others joined the league and we began joint endeavors to recover our radiance in worldwide hockey," he said. "By the beauty of God, Pakistan earned silver in the Champions Trophy 2014 furthermore turned out runners-up in a year ago's Asian Games. The group have begun clicking and I think the days are not far off when we will again rise as successful," Akhtar said. "As of now, the PHF has a significant undertaking available to fit the bill for the 2016 Rio Olympics qualifiers to be held in Belgium in July this year. Anyhow sadly the current poor money related condition is making a significant obstacle for us in setting up the group for this critical task. Hence, a quick arrival of the stores to the PHF will help us begin arrangements," Akhtar said.

Furthermore, a victory in the Asian Games could have been proved as a tonic for reviving hockey in Pakistan, remarked the former Olympian who held chief selector Islahuddin, head coach Shahnaz Sheikh, PHF president Akhtar Rasool and secretary Rana Mujahid responsible for the Asiad loss and subsequent possible failure to qualify for the next Olympics.
