CEO Rahul Johri not allowed to attend BCCI SGM
Adhering strictly to the Supreme Court diktat of letting in only office-bearers, the BCCI did not allow its CEO Rahul Johri to attend the Special General Meeting. Along with Johri, the representatives Odisha and Punjab were debarred from the meeting as the representatives were not office-bearers.
As per the SC order, the ones eligible are president, vice president, secretary, joint/assistant Secretary and treasurer. It was learnt that Johri was told by Amitabh Choudhary that he along with all other BCCI employees should leave the meeting premises as SC order of July 24 states that only office-bearers should be attending the meeting. While it is not a rule but a convention, a team of BCCI employees are always available for secretarial help during these meetings but a wary BCCI went straight by the book.
