Apex court clears deck for RCA poll result announcement

The apex court on Wednesday cleared the deck for declaration of result of Rajasthan Cricket Association elections and asked the poll observer to declare it on May 6. Brushing aside the objection of BCCI which is expecting that the result might go in favour of Lalit Modi, a bench headed by Justice A R Dave directed the registry to send the results, filed in a sealed envelope, before it by its appointed observer Justice (retd) N M Kasliwal, to the observer to declare the result.

The apex court had on November 20, 2013 made its retired judge Justice Kasliwal a principal observer to oversee the elections. Modi was allowed to fight for the post of RCA President in the 19 December elections held under the supervision of a Supreme Court-appointed observer. Modi was slapped with a life ban on September 25 last year by the BCCI after its disciplinary committee found him guilty on eight charges of ‘indiscipline and misconduct’.
