Anurag Thakur Appointed As HOPA Head


Dharamsala: Ex-BCCI chief Anurag Thakur who was ousted as from the post following a Supreme Court order, has been unanimously elected head of the Himachal Pradesh Olympic Association (HPOA) for a four-year term.

He was elected at the HPOA’s Annual General Meeting at Dharamsala which took place on Saturday.  Thakur had to step down as BCCI president owing to the apex court ruling on Justice (Retd)Lodha Committee reforms.
