Disqualified officials stalling Lodha Reforms: CoA to SC
In a scathing status report, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has described N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah as "disqualified office bearers with vested interest", who are trying to stall implementation of Lodha reforms.
It is fourth status report that has been submitted to the Supreme Court by the CoA. The earlier reports were filed on February 27, March 17 and April 7. The next hearing on the matter is scheduled for July 14.
The report praised acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary for trying to work towards implementation of reforms but accused treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhary - a Srinivasan loyalist - of being a "mute spectator".
The COA also expressed its helplessness in building consensus among State Units.
Point seven in the report read:"During the intervening period of three months since CoA filed third status report, every effort has been made by the CoA to build consensus among constituent members of BCCI for adoption of new BCCI constitution. The CoA held two meetings, on May 6 (a day before SGM) and June 25 (a day before SGM) in an attempt to build consensus but all these efforts were to no avail."
"The SGM held on June 26 was manifestly disruptive.
Before the meeting a substantial consensus has been arrived at as a result of mutual deliberations between COA and various constituents members of BCCI."
Point nine mentioned former BCCI President Srinivasan and Shah, who have been kingpins of disruption.
