New Delhi: Squash Racquet Federation of India (SRFI) chief Narayana Ramachandran is set to be elected unopposed as the president of Indian Olympic Association (IOA) in the polls to be held here next month as he was the only candidate to file nomination papers for the top post on Saturday, the last day for filing nomination papers.

Ramachandran is the brother of N. Srinivasan, president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, and has been treasurer of the IOA between 2008 and 2012.

The 9 February elections for the top IOA post is likely to clear the decks for India’s return to the Olympic fold after the IOA was suspended by International Olympic Committee on 4 December 2012.

Hockey India associate vice-president Rajeev Mehta will also be elected unopposed as secretary general. All India Tennis Association chief Anil Khanna will take over as IOA treasurer. PTI
