Suspended ( or rather soon to be ) Badminton Association of Malaysia Hon. Secretary P. Ganga Rao was neither shocked nor surprised when contacted last night.
" If what you are telling me is true, then so be it, " said Ganga.
" I have not been informed about it and really I will have to await for official notification.
" I have always put the interest of badminton as a priority and will continue to do so.
" if they ( BAM ) feel that I have acted against the interest of badminton, then I have nothing to say.
" Let us wait for the show cause letter and take it from there.
" I am aware of certain quarters claiming that I have acted against the interest of BAM and will reveal all at the right forum."
Ganga added that he believed that in the end the truth will prevail.
It is learnt that BAM President Dato Nadzmi, General Manager Kenny Goh and Peter Yeow made a representation to the BAM Patron for the suspension of Ganga. - http://ssdhaliwal.blogspot.com

Move over, Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
The more pressing issue is the rumour swirling around the corridors of BA of Malaysia (BAM) that its secretary P. Ganga Rao is to be issued a letter of suspension upon his return from Melbourne tomorrow.
BAM apparently has gathered enough evidence to initiate a disciplinary action against Ganga for alleged misconduct. The mainstream media is expected to go to town with the story, two months ahead of the Thomas Cup finals in Kuala Lumpur.
BAM president Datuk Nadzmi Salleh who is bound for a medical treatment in Germany for a month beginning Friday, is said to have given the go-ahead for action to be taken against Ganga.
