New Delhi: Rattled by the doping scandal that has rocked Indian athletics, the Sports Ministry is planning to bring a new law to deal with the menace in the forthcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament.
"We are going to the Cabinet in this regard and wish to bring a specific law on doping in the Monsoon Session of Parliament," said Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs Ajay Maken, on the sidelines of a workshop on population held at Vigyan Bhawan here on Monday. "We also want that the WADA norms be applicable to all sports. In case the norms or international sports bodies are different from those of WADA, or are in conflict, then the norms of international sports bodies would be applicable."
When asked about the Board of Control for Cricket in India, which does not adhere to WADA norms on doping, the minister said, "I am not talking about any one sport. This will be made applicable to all sports."
