Islamabad, August 19, 2013 (PPI-OT): The news item highlighted in media maligning Director General, Pakistan Sports Board Syed Amir Hamza Gilani, for not recommending the name of Mr.Muhammad Asif, World Snooker Champion for Pride of Performance Award.
The news item is quite baseless and against the facts as PSB had forwarded the name of Mr. Muhammad Asif, World Snooker Champion for Pride of Performance Award. It is pertinent to mention that the final decision for awarding the Pride of Performance Award is the sole prerogative of selection committee and not the DG PSB. Therefore the actual position should be portrayed rather than the baseless reporting.
