Focus on Thakur's affidavit ahead of BCCI SGM

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

President Anurag Thakur's affidavit, to be submitted in the Supreme Court, will be the focal point of discussions when the BCCI's affiliated units meet for a Special General Meeting (SGM) here tomorrow to deliberate upon implementation of the Lodha Committee Reforms.

Other issues that could be discussed at length are "One State One Vote" recommendation and three-year tenure with three year cooling off period.



The apex had directed Thakur to file an affidavit and clarify whether he had asked the to write that Lodha Recommendations amounted to government interference. This was reportedly claimed by Chief Executive Dave Richardson in some recent media interactions.

The legal team is preparing the affidavit.

According to sources close to the president, he only "followed up on former president Shashank Manohar's earlier plea wherein he (Manohar) had stated appointment of CAG representative in Apex Council will subject to interference."

"Since the issue was only raised by Shashank, Anurag was following up on that," a reliable source told PTI.

With Supreme scheduled to hear the case on Monday, it is perhaps the last chance for the richest cricket body in world to discuss the issues which they feel will affect the functioning of the Board.

"We are not against One State One Vote clause. All we are saying is that why can't the voter base be increased? Let Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh have voting rights. But at the same time let Mumbai and Saurashtra not lose theirs," an office bearer from one of eastern states said.

It is unlikely that members will agree on three-year term with three year cooling off period.

Many in the Board feel that the best idea would be to have two terms of six years with three year cooling off period in between two terms.

Incidentally this was a proposal mooted by former Indian cricket team Director Ravi Shastri.

While Vidarbha and Tripura have decided to accept Lodha Reforms in totality, till now majority of the state units still feel recommendations are unacceptable.
