Request Lodha Panel to review clarifications: UN Banerjee

Questioning Lodha Committee’s fresh clarifications, Cricket Association of Bengal legal advisor Ushanath Banerjee on Friday pleaded for a review saying it made a clear departure from the earlier stand and misconstrued the order.

In a second set of Frequently Asked Questions put up in its website, the Justice RM Lodha Committee made it clear that former India captain Sourav Ganguly whose name was prominently levelled as the next president, would have to undergo a compulsory cooling-off period of three years after competing three years at the state association as secretary and president. It was also clarified that total tenure in cricket administration (state+BCCI) will be nine years cumulative and not 18 years as it was mentioned earlier. “Having highest respect towards the Hon’ble Supreme Court Committee and their valued decision making processes, with utmost humility, I believe that such fresh modus as informed on January 12, 2017 is not merely a complete departure from the prudent stand of qualifying the “disqualifications”, but also misconstruing the expression “OR” in the solemn order of January 3, 2017 of the Hon’ble Court.
