After serving eight months suspension, Hockey Punjab is back in action.

After serving eight months suspension, Hockey Punjab is back in action. At a general house meeting held on Thursday, Nitin Kohli and Olympian Harpreet Singh were unanimously elected President and Honorary Secretary of  Hockey Punjab.

Hockey Punjab was suspended by Hockey India in January this year  on the allegations that it was not functioning in accordance with the guidelines. Doubts were raised over the manner in which the previous elections were held.

At that time, Hockey India had appointed an ad hoc committee to run the affairs of Hockey Punjab. Olympian Balwinder Singh Shammi, who has now been elected Vice-President, steered Hockey Punjab, during the suspension period.
