Concern over lighting of India's Ambedkar Stadium

The meeting between the All India Football Federation and the Delhi Soccer Association with the Municipal Corporation of India's capital city, Delhi, to discuss the lighting of the Ambedkar Stadium has been further delayed. "Floodlights are supposed to be installed at the stadium before the start of ONGC International Football tournament - which will feature five foreign teams besides hosts India - on 16 August. However, there seems to be no urgency on part of the officials concerned to get on with the job," commented Mohammad Aminul Uslam of the Times of India.

The meeting was put off as AIFF president Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi could not ttend. "We were informed in the morning that the meeting has been called off and we are yet to get the dates for the next meeting," DSA secretary NK Bhatia told the newspaper.
