The <a href="/tags/Green-Park/post" target="_blank">Green Park</a> stadium belongs to the <a href="/tags/UP-Sports-Department/post" target="_blank">UP Sports Department</a> and they are free to appoint anyone for this responsibility," said Anil Banodha, the deputy director of UP Sports Department.<br /> <br /> The pitch curator of the UPCA, which organises international matches at the Green Park, said he cannot do anything about the current set-up.<br /> <br /> "Green Park belongs to UP Government. The <a href="/tags/UPCA/post" target="_blank">UPCA</a> gets it only when it is hosting an international match. When the stadium doesn't belong to us, how can we assume responsibility of its pitch," he said.<br /> <br /> Shiv, meanwhile, said he works as per instructions of his department.<br /> <br /> "In 2007, I had even attended a training camp in Kolkata," he claimed.
