Continuing his crusade against the alleged corruption in the BCCI due to president-in-exile N Srinivasan’s presence, Aditya Verma today threatened to move Supreme Court if the board’s Annual General Meeting fails to make its September deadline.
The BCCI members in an informal meeting in Chennai today decided to convene a Working Committee meet on September 26 and wait for the AGM till the SC-appointed Mukul Mudgal committee submits its final report in the first week of November.
The BCCI elections, which are scheduled to be held during the AGM, need to be conducted before September 30, according to the board’s constitution rules, and Verma, the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar and the petitioner in the IPL corruption case, said that he was ready to move to Apex court for justice.
“I will moved to Supreme Court, if BCCI deferred or postponed their coming AGM at the outset, I would like to bring to your notice the complete chaos that is prevailing in Indian cricket because of the absence of an able leader,” Verma wrote in a media statement.
Though legal experts believe that key members in the BCCI executive committee seem to be misinterpreting the SC order and the Board’s Memorandum and rules and regulation in force since September 15, 2012 by trying to imply that Srinivasan’s presence in the AGM is necessary.
