New Delhi: Newly-appointed president of Delhi Badminton Association (DBA), Mohammad Azharuddin says legendary shuttler Prakash Padukone is the best man to run the sport in India.

Talking about the sports federations' attempts to keep players away from administration, Azharuddin said: "It has been happening for so many years, otherwise, Prakash Padukone would have been here. He is the best man to run badminton in India. He has played the sport with great distinction and won so many tournaments. Why do you thing he is not coming? He nowadays doesn't like talking about badminton elections.

"Players know what players want. If you don't give them chance how do you know how good they are. It is totally injustice. In Hockey, two federations keep fighting and so we don't win any medals.
