Amidst the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) – Lodha Committee, Supreme Court tussle former India opener Chetan Chauhan who was the vice-president of the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) has decided to give up his position in the State Cricket Association. That after SC’s January 2 and 3 verdict where it not only clarified the stand on absolutely no compromise on the implementation on the recommendations of the Lodha panel and thus we have seen a lot of resignations.
“I clarify my position that I have demitted my office of vice-president of the DDCA in the wake of the Supreme Court verdict on January 2 and 3. I had completed my nine years as office-bearer and as per norms I had to relinquish office. Post January 2, I had refused signing any document official or financial as it would have been contempt of court,” Chauhan told PTI on Friday.
“In fact, I was not very frequent at the Kotla for last one and half months bit post SC order, I have completely withdrawn myself from any business related to the DDCA. If the new set of eligible office-bearers need any clarification, I am always happy to help out. But that is “if” they need me,” he said.
Chauhan is hoping that Justice Mudgal the DDCA observer appointed by the Delhi High Court will soon issue a list of administrators who are eligible to apply for positions again when the fresh elections are held under the guidelines of the SC.
“DDCA needs to have elections soon. Justice Mudgal I hope would release the list of who all are eligible as per Supreme Court ruling. I believe a few more senior office bearers will also cease to operate. The audited accounts need to be submitted as a meagre amount I believe is left in DDCA coffers. The thing that makes me happy is that Delhi’s U-19 team has made it to the final of the Cooch Behar Trophy,” he concluded.
