Alka Rehani Bhardwaj, the CAG’s nominee to the BCCI Apex Council, has called for a meeting of the powerful body at the earliest to “discuss” multiple complaints of violation of the new constitution.
“...I along with other Councillors, have received number of complaints from one Mr. Sanjeev Gupta, pointing out to various violations by BCCI of the Honourable Supreme Court approved Constitution in August 2018,” she wrote in the e-mail.
In the past, Gupta had filed conflict of interest complaints against the likes of Rahul Dravid and the former Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Kapil Dev, Shantha Rangaswamy and Anshuman Gaekwad.
Out of Gupta’s five complaints that Bhardwaj listed, one is against former MPCA secretary Milind Kanmadikar, who was appointed manager for the ongoing India A tour of New Zealand.
Gupta alleges that he is under compulsory cooling-off period having served as MPCA office-bearer from 2012-2019.
“In terms of BCCI Rule 8 and 15, there is no provision through which either BCCI AGM or BCCI Apex Council can delegate their powers to BCCI office-bearers. Thus, as requested on 7 January 2020, I again request for early convening of Apex Council meeting,” she wrote further.
