Tennis Jamaica have responded to comments made by John Azar published in yesterday’s Gleaner.In the article, Azar contended that he was legitimately elected in the abandoned election and described the over-voting as a deliberate attempt by the administration to compromise the process.In a response via press release, Tennis Jamaica president, John Bailey, said the association “remains committed to proper governance of the association and an electoral process that is transparent and fair”.It also said it rejected Azar’s accusations.”With regards to the disputed ballots, neither Mr Azar nor the administration of Tennis Jamaica is in a position to establish which ballots were compromised, as the exercise was based on secret ballots that were not marked for identification purposes.”It added that affidavits from persons purporting to vote for Azar would be inadequate replacements for ballots that may be in dispute.”Persons may, for their own benefit, give incorrect or untruthful responses after the fact.”The releases added: “It is in the pursuit of this, that – after consultation with our board and taking advice from competent persons – we decided to go the route of holding fresh elections to secure a new administration, following the last exercise on November 19, 2015 which had to be terminated due to the action of some unscrupulous members. This, amid the fact that the methodology used then to govern the elections was the usual.”On that occasion, conducting a re-vote was not possible as the meeting had broken down and a number of members had left the premises.”Tennis Jamaica asserted that the current approach is one that it believed would satisfy the requirements of all “well-thinking members of the association and persons who love the sport of tennis.The release added that Tennis Jamaica had secured the services of Jamaica Olympic Association to organise and administer the fresh elections set for March “in a way to remove any doubt as to the integrity of the proposed elections”.
Soon after a Delhi court Wednesday granted bail to businessman Abhishek Verma and his Romanian wife in a graft case, the CBI arrested them afresh over a forgery complaint filed by Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Ajay Maken.Following their fresh arrest, the court sent them to judicial custody for a day.”The arrest has been effected by Inspector Vipin Kumar in the court itself and identity of the investigating officer is not in dispute at all. I do not find any substance in the opposition of the defence counsel in any manner. Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the case, both the accused are remanded in judicial custody till tomorrow,” the court said.Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge Sanjeev Jain earlier granted bail to Verma and his wife Anca Maria Neacsu in a corruption case as the CBI failed to file the charge sheet against them within the stipulated 60 days from arrest.The court granted bail to them on a personal bond of Rs.10 lakh each and two sureties each of the same amount.Verma, also an accused in the 2006 naval war room leak case, and his wife were arrested June 8 for allegedly receiving money from a Swiss arms company to stall the blacklisting proceedings against it by the Indian government.The Enforcement Directorate (ED) also filed an application seeking permission to arrest the couple in a money laundering case registered against them. The court allowed the ED to interrogate the two in Tihar Jail.advertisement
One year is a long time in any sport and staying away from the track for the same period doesn’t bode well for anyone who hopes to make it big in the world of motor racing.But confidence can make anything possible and it is exactly the reason why Akhil Khushlani ended up on the podium in the 10th round of the JK Racing Asia Series at Silverstone last weekend.After a long lay-off, Khushlani arrived at the British track with little practice but after not-so-impressive performances in practice and qualifying, the US Formula Project driver stunned everyone with a second-place finish.”I was completely off track for close to one year. But when I arrived in Silverstone, I was pretty confident as I had done testing on simulators at home,” Khushlani told Mail Today.”The only thing I was nervous about was the track as this was the first time I was racing at the Silverstone circuit. I planned my whole race differently and wanted to put my car amongst the top 3 in practice and qualifying, which didn’t happen. But I did well to finish second in the race,” the 22-year-old added.The next round of events for the JK Racing Asia series are at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida in October.For Khushlani, taking up motorsports wasn’t a difficult choice as his father was a bike racer.Khushlani was introduced to karting at the age of nine and the results started coming soon. In 2005, he became the first Asian to finish in the top five at the World Karting Championships.After seven years of karting, Khushlani graduated to the Formula BMW series and drove with distinction for Team Euorasia before he began racing in the JK Racing Asia series.Khushlani, an Ayrton Seena fan, hopes to take further strides in his motor racing career but understands that a lot depends on the sponsorship he can garner for himself.”JK Tyre has been supporting me for quite some time. I plan to move ahead in my motor racing career and for now, I am taking everything step by step.”Getting ahead from here – it all depends on the budget. I’ll wait for this season to get over and may be after November, take a call on my career.”advertisement

Finally, Varun tries to convince the issue to Vithika in the restroom. The two sorted out their differences and apologized to each other.When the couple entered the house of Bigg Boss Telugu 3, many viewers feared that they should not have come together on the show. Their decision might lead to creating differences between the two and lead to divorce. After seeing the drama on Tuesday, some of them felt that the couple is slowly heading towards splitting. Here is what they have to say about this whole episode.•✨♡Arshi Stuck♡✨• @YouMeRabbaVe VR @imrvishnu #vithika ♂️ irritated a lot in today episode… didn’t understand whether she suffering with stomach pain or head ache … not sure whether she knows #BiggBossTelugu3 Sreemukhi is wayyyy better than Punarnavi. Punarnavi aa nasa enti thali. Vithika vanta chesindi ga. It is team wrk n if not today, she will do it tomm. Big deal. Eeme ki task artam kaaka andarni nasa pertundi #BiggBossTelugu3 Vitika simple issue ni serious ga teesukuntadi and normal ga cheppedi kuda chala harsh ga convey chestadi. Short temper and loud mouth. #BiggBossTelugu3 I agree with her point. But punarnavi didn’t say it rudely no. She has to take it easy. She could have said the same thing normally without shouting. The way she responds to an issue is not good. She takes everything as an attack on her. #BiggBossTelugu3 Vitika got pissed with punarnavi. Navi got upset. Varun tried to calm them down. Vitika shouted again.. Even though her points are valid.. Varun supported navi because she was ‘shouting’ and he doesn’t want his wife to screw up her relationship with her friend. #BiggBossTelugu3 She is not the only one who cooked Ashu Reddy also helped if u see properly. Unadhi 15 members each 2 dosa Total 30.then she hardly made 15 to 20 dosa and she is saying 35 to 40 ❓❓ they limited luxury budget too BiggBossTeluguFan @BiggBossTelugu2 Why #VithikaSheru keep on checking cameras while she talks??? She is definitely big irritating woman in the house #BiggBoss3Telugu #BiggBossTeluguSeason3 #BiggBossTelugu3 @StarMaa Episode10: #VarunSandesh is an active volcano who doesn’t know when he will explode on his wife. Clearly not showing his anger because of cameras.#biggbosstelugu3 @StarMaa #BiggBossTelugu3 #VithikaSheru BiggBossTelugu3 @TeluguBiggBoss3 #BiggBossTelugu3 Don’t see logic in pple’s voting if U R not vting for vithika for ystday’s over drama then same logic shd be applied on punarnavi as well. She instigated her basing on the fact that she didnt participate in cycle task with out considering her effort in kitchen.. TeluguBiggBoss @RealMeSunny Sandhya @Sandhyaa1996 The writer @ThewriterVS I don’t think so.. Wife tho issues quite common. ayina aa godava ninna ne sorry cheppukoni idaru cool ayyaru. ippudu godava vere la anipistundi. #BiggBossTelugu3 I support vithika in today’s episode.she cooked..punarnvi pointing her was not fair.there is no point if everyone starts fightng to be on cycle..punarnavi is being overconfident n showing her real self.rahul simplignj is in love it seems, blindly supportng her #BiggBossTelugu3 I am sure punarnvi will take all the praises to her head..today we saw her attitude while speaking to vithika and shivjyoti..ppl callng her mature shud w8 n see how she changes..just don’t fall for her looks.outer beauty need not make a persn beautiful frm inside #BiggBossTelugu3 #BiggBoss3Telugu #BiggBossTelugu3 #Telugubiggboss3 Looks like punarnavi wantedly locking horns with Vithika for some reason, nd Vthika is exactly getting trapped in Punarnavi’s scheme of whatever it is. Vthika is definitely getting into bad books for not controlling her emotions Visa Sriram @visasriram Today’s drama provided as per the script by Vithika Sheru, the drama queen of #BiggBossTelugu3. Varun has patience which comes with being with a woman like Vithika, no doubt, but I guess he needs to take a stand for himself in the #BiggBossTelugu3 house, unless it’s a plan (looks like it) by the couple. People know Varun more than Vithika. He needs the win more than her. Sammakka.Saarakka @SSaarakka It’s time for #VithikaSheru to exit the house. 1. She is gossiping 2. Just want to make big scene for small things (last with week #Mahesh and this week with #punarnavi) 3. #Varun would play better without her. This video an example of her drama! #BiggBossTelugu3 biggbosstelugu3 @biggbosstelugu9 Hari Krishna @Krishna19Hari Lalitha @Lalitha12618607 Aruna vedula karra @Arunaved272 I think Vithika is Right Cooking is not an easy thing.it exhausts our body and it requires atleast 15 mins to recover from that stress.what is Navi is doing in house actually.never seen her doing any work. another Sunayana without tanish #BiggBossTelugu3 She’s not mad on Navi. She’s mad on his Hus for supporting navi instead of her.its every wife’s nature around the world. No women on earth like this thing even though it’s her mistake. #BiggBossTelugu3 strategic move by vithika and varun… to gain screen space and image. Last week screen space for Issue with mahesh, this week screen space for remainding the task… by navi… punarnavi most deserved candidate for final..5
