Supreme Court To Consider Removal Of Three BCCI Members, Issues Show Cause Notice
A notice has been issued to the three members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) by the Supreme Court for not implementing the Lodha Panel Report.
The Supreme Court has ordered three members of the BCCI to appear in the court on Sept. 19 for failing to implement the Lodha Panel Report. A show cause notice has been issued to them and the apex court has also asked the Committee of Administrators (CoA) to prepare a new draft of the BCCI constitution.
The Supreme Court recently issued notices to three BCCI members for not implementing the Lodha Panel Report. According to reports from The Indian Express, show cause notices have been sent to C K Khanna, the acting president, Amitabh Chaudhary, acting secretary and Anirudh Chaudhary, acting treasurer. The court has ordered them to appear on Sept. 19.
It has also asked the Committee of Administrators (CoA) to prepare a draft of the BCCI constitution which will be later given to the BCCI and then the BCCI can submit their suggestions. The apex court has said that it is open on some issues but the BCCI has been lacking in action.
The report which will be prepared by Committee of Administrators will be taken into consideration by the Supreme Court. Notably, the committee has recommended the removal of these three members as it considers them unfit to be part of the BCCI because of their improper conduct.
It has also requested the court to hand over the matters to the CoA till new members are elected. If reports are to be believed, the court was angry over the fact that the recommendations of the Lodha Panel and directions of the apex court were not implemented by BCCI.
It may be mentioned here that the Supreme Court has already removed former BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke for failure to comply with the Lodha Panel report.
