The Committee of Administrators (CoA) said on Tuesday that the defiance of the BCCI office-bearers, who are keen on going ahead with the special general meeting (SGM) in the capital on June 22, smells of conspiracy by the board’s old guard to undermine the committee’s decisions.
“It is clear that characterizing the General Body as “supreme” is nothing but an attempt to bypass the orders passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in terms of which the office bearers of BCCI are required to act under the supervision and control of the Committee of Administrators. Your email itself concedes that the General Body intends to discuss issues in which the decisions taken by the Committee of Administrators are likely to come up for discussion. This reveals that the real purpose of the proposed SGM is to try and undermine decisions taken by the CoA. Indeed, the contentions raised in your trailing email are clearly self-serving and have no basis either in law or fact,” the CoA wrote to BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary on Tuesday.
The two-member CoA also brought to the notice of Choudhary that it is not in receipt of any requisition calling for the SGM. “Even if you have actually issued the notice dated 31st May 2018 upon receipt of the required number of requisitions from the Member Associations of BCCI, it was nevertheless incumbent upon you (as an office bearer) to seek the approval of the Committee of Administrators in terms of Paragraph 10 of the directions dated 15th March 2018 prior to doing so (in exercise of your duty as an office bearer). Your otherwise lengthy and protracted email fails to offer any explanation as to why you did not do so,” says the letter.
