On January 24 this year, the Supreme Court seat containing Justices Dipak Mishra, AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud said that “it won’t consider anybody over the age of 70 according to the Justice Lodha board rules” while assigning the Committee of Administrators (COA) to assume control over the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
That is the manner by which the Apex court named Vinod Rai, Vikram Limaye, Ramachandra Guha and Diana Edulji seven days after the fact. And all were less than 70 years old.
The COA has now plainly revealed to BCCI three qualified authorities — Amitabh Choudhary (joint-secretary), Anirudh Chaudhry (treasurer) and CK Khanna (VP) — on Monday that “no person over the age of 70 can be a piece of any of the BCCI boards.
In straightforward words, previous BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah (SCA best honcho for about four decades) and who is 72, can’t be the director of the NCA Board. Or, then again so far as that is concerned, 71-year-old MP Pandove (Punjab Cricket Association office carrier for more than 40 years) additionally needs to go from IPL Governing Council.
Be that as it may, the three BCCI authorities, it appears, have other motivation at the top of the priority list. They have contended with the COA that there is no request of the Hon’ble Supreme Court that excludes any individual from being an individual from any council of the BCCI or to speak to the BCCI or any of its individuals by virtue of being beyond 70 years old. This, as per them, just applies to individuals for getting to be office-bearers of the BCCI or the state affiliations.
No big surprise, the three are attempting to clear route for N Srinivasan, Sharad Pawar, G Gangaraju, Asirbad Behera and a couple of additional to return into BCCI.
The BCCI trio, while communicating “aim is to work with the COA in a friendly and productive way” has additionally declined to concede the unique general meeting, as being asked by COA on Monday, being approached April 9 in Mumbai.
In a letter sent on Tuesday, it has been expressed that “larger part of the BCCI individuals — state affiliations — needed to talk about the aftermath from the court orders at the SGM”. Thus, Choudhary, at the heading of Khanna – the acting BCCI president, since he is the most senior VP – met the SGM on April 9 in Mumbai.
The workplace bearers included that it was “incomprehensible” to anticipate that them will share the choices taken by any of the BCCI boards of trustees with the COA, as it had coordinated. “Be that as it may, the undersigned can guarantee you that the choices of the general body will without a doubt be in accordance with the best advantages of the BCCI and would not be disregarding court orders.”
