Lalit Modi camp hits out in the ongoing Rajasthan Cricket Association tussle

first_imgThe tussle between different camps in the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) got further entangled after the Lalit Modi camp hit out at the other side in Jaipur today. The Modi camp claimed some people had outside political support and were trying to subvert the Constitution of the body by targeting its duly elected members. Lalit Modi’s son Ruchir Modi was planning to contest the RCA elections before they were called off.Today, Mehmood Abdi, who claims to be the Deputy President of RCA (despite his suspension by the other side) claimed, they wanted the elections to be conducted in the cricket association by following the guidelines laid down by the Lodha Committee.Abdi mentioned, “It is very necessary to adopt the Lodha Committee recommendations because under the present orders of the honourable Supreme Court, any association, including BCCI and its Constituent bodies, like what you said, the state association, they are mandated, they are bound to fall in line with the Lodha Committee recommendations. Whosoever is not in line with the Lodha Committee recommendations, he is not going to get any recognition from BCCI, no funding, nothing and cricket will suffer in any state where Lodha Committee recommendations are not implemented. So, that is why, in our wisdom we decided to go ahead with implementing the Lodha Committee recommendations so as to become acceptable to BCCI for funding and for development of the game of cricket in the state.”  Earlier, a statement issued by Abdi mentioned, “Media Reports about the so called meeting convened by a joint secretary of the R.C.A. for taking decisions beyond his authority are totally unauthorized and illegal. The reports of so called suspension of the duly elected president, secretary, Deputy president and the treasurer of the Rajasthan Cricket Association by an authorized assembly of persons many of whom are unconnected with cricket association is not only laughable but also expression of utter frustration on the part of the disgruntled elements who are somehow hell bent upon capturing power in R.C.A.”advertisementlast_img read more
