Ranchi (Agencies): It seems National Games will remain jinxed til they actually get over. That is of course if they ever begin. The event is set for a chaotic start as utter confusion prevailed over organisational aspects of the premier multi-discipline competition that set to start here on February 12.

Even as the Jharkhand Olympic Association should be given credit for building a sprawling Mega Sports Complex -- Khelgaon -- at the outskirts of the city, the organisational
aspect of the competition is not yet in place.

With accreditation of most of the athletes and media not ready, players contingents from various states and media had to go through a harrowing time on Thursday.

The private agency given the responsibility of the accreditation seemed to have lost all the applications as the procedure of applying in hard copies had to be done again
at last minute.

Such was the mismanagement that the players accreditation for the hosts Jharkhand was not even ready.

The case was no different for the media as the JOA assured that they would hand over the cards soon.

"We will contact you by 10pm," JOA president R K Anand told a news agency.

Asked about the organisational chaos, Anand said, "We had seven governments after which we were awarded the Games. But despite that we have managed to build such an infrastructure. Everything will fall in place soon."

The Games have been postponed several times before. A total of 33 events will be held in three cities of Ranchi, Dhanbad and Jamshedpur in the competition to be held from
February 12-26.

Mary Kom not given NOC

Uncertainty prevailed over World Champion M C Mary Kom's representing Jharkhand in the
Games as she was yet to get the 'NO-Objection-Certificate' from the Director General of
Police, Manipur.

"I think my dream to represent Jharkhand in the mega sports event is bleak as I am yet to get the NOC from the chief of Manipur police," the five-time world champion pugilist told agencies over phone.

Mary Kom, who was to represent the host team in the 51 kg category, said she along with her coach met the DGP on Thursday but nothing could be finalized.

"I had applied for the NOC on February 3, but did not get it," she said.

While the Boxing Federation of India has already given green signal to Mary Kom regarding her wish to play for Jharkhand, the All India Police Control Board has recommended her to seek NOC from her employer 'Manipur police'.
