He further said: "He, through IOC, sent us numerous mails and misled us. He has hurt the sentiments of the country. He has let the nation down. The government is also to be blamed somewhere as they made us follow their guidelines. So, I want to blame both Randhir and the government for the current mess."
Asked whether the Indian Olympic Association would appeal to the CAS, Chautala said, "I would like to inform you here that we were to send two of our officials -- Narinder Batra and R K Anand -- to Lausanne to make our stand clear.
"They didn't revert back to us. We will request the IOC to listen to us first and then take the next step. I am confident that they will lift the ban after hearing us."
On Lalit Bhanot's appointment to the post of secretary general, Chautala said, "We will reply to the IOC if they send us any communication."
He assured that the athletes' future would not be affected.
"There is enough time to sort out all the issues. Asian Games is in 2014, the Olympics is in 2016. IOA would like to assure all the sportspersons that their future will not be impacted by the decision and we will sort out all the issues in near future."
