The AIFF has no role in the development of Women’s Football in India. The AIFF was formed only for male generation, but when Women’s Football became popular and crowed pulling sport due to hard and dedicated work of its founders, the AIFF started creating problems in the activities of WFFI. The then AIFF bosses used their money & muscle power to destroy the WFFI. They used their political influence and de recognize the WFFI by the Sports Ministry in the year 1990 during the regime of Mrs. Swapna Roy as President, and Mr. Anis Lari as Hon.

REBIRTH OF WFFI

During the de- recognition, the then incumbent of WFFI tried to save the WFFI but they could not succeed in their efforts, and surrender to Mr. Dasmunshi the then President of AIFF. But the WFFI Mr. Zaidi keep on his struggle to save the WFFI and the started to make a front to fight against the terror of the AIFF.

Finally, a meeting was called by Mr. Zaidi in Delhi and Luck now and on the advice of Mr. Theper Head Coach of NIS Patiala and Head Coach of Indian Women’s team, Krishna Singh was specially called to fight against the terror of the AIFF (Mr. Dasmunshi). He was made acting Secretary of the WFFI. Soon after he took the charge of this post he started his visit to all over India to meet WFFI state units and he re-united the state units of WFFI. He felt that this struggle may not get success without political support. The WFFI has no money. It was economically and politically very poor and week. Krishna Singh started visiting to meet different political people specially ladies personalities but unfortunately no one was agreed to help because no one would like to become part of disputed body. Fortunately he met Mrs. Rama pilot, W/O late Sh. Rajesh pilot, the then Home Minister, Govt. of India. She listen Krishna Singh views and proposal very patiently and she accepted proposal and accepted the higher post of the WFFI and assure her full cooperation and help. File of the WFFI was reopen by the then Sports Minister Mr. Mukul wasnik and proceeding started and proceeding started to settle the dispute between the WFFI and the AIFF.

DISPUTE WITH ALFF

The WFFI was ready to accept solution ‘B’ but AIFF ideas has always been to destroy the WFFI. The AIFF misinterpreted the FIFA circular and mislead all concerned authorities like Sports Ministry, IOA, SAI etc and started using their political influence. Finally the Recognition of the WFFI was withdrawn by Ms. Mamta Benerji, then Sports Minister, Govt. of India nder the pressure of Late Mr. P R Dasmunhi. Unfortunately the WFFI had no political patronage. Since then the WFFI players and officials who actually helped the game to be born in the country and nursed at all times, are struggling to save the WFFI. The WFFI appeal was taken into consideration during the regime of Ms. Uma Bharti ji, the them Sports Minister and a solution was made by the Ministry but AIFF specially Mr. Dasmunshi keep on this matter in pending and the matter is still under dispute.

Finally, the WFFI would like to stress on this point that the WFFI was killed by the AIFF and then Sports Ministry for no fault of theirs, but to political influence of Mr. Dasmunshi and his political group which has domination in I O A and Sports Ministry, Govt. of India.
