Addressing a press conference here at the Pakistan Sports Board Media Center after presiding over the PSB Executive Committee meeting, Bijrani, who is also Federal Minister for Inter Provincial Coordination (IPC), said that all units unanimously agreed on the implementation of SC verdict but some were opposing the criteria of its implementation.
State Minister IPC, Malik Azmat Khan, Secretary IPC Anees-ul-Hasnain Moosvi and Director General (Tech &Training) PSB Akhtar Nawaz Ganjera were also present on the occasion.
Bijrani said that the proceeding of the meeting ran smoothly and the PSB was not willing to intervene in the affairs of national sports federations.

”We are sincere to support the federation for the implementation of NSP,” he maintained.
He revealed that the House also constituted a four-member committee to revisit the 4XI and 4iia clauses of the NSP to make necessary amendments.
“Both DGs PSB, legal advisor of IPC and Deputy Secretary IPC will be the members of the committee,” he viewed.
To a question regarding Pakistan Olympic Association (POA), as they are not affiliated with Pakistan Sports Board and the SC had clearly mentioned the verdict doesn’t apply on POA, Bijrani said that PSB would impose the ruling of SC on its affiliated sports federations. But have asked for their (POA’s) opinion to convince us that they are an affiliated unit of the PSB or not,” he said.
Bijrani further said, International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) had written a letter to IPC and expressed their concerns and warned government that Pakistan could be banned from taking part in the international sports if they would interfere in the affairs of the POA and national sports federations. However, the government has sent a joint secretary for consultations with the IOC in which Pakistan’s government point of view would be made clear,” he said.
