New Delhi: The AITA outrightly rejected the rebel players' fresh demands, saying their inclusion in the Executive or Selection Committees is not possible unless they enter the national federation through elections.

AITA also categorically said the three-member committee it has formed to resolve the ongoing crisis would go ahead with its work and if players make themselves available, they will be considered for selection.

Somdev Devvarman, who is leading the players' revolt, has gone a step further by asking the national federation to re-constitute its Executive and Selection Committees by having 50 per cent players representation in the two bodies.
