Senior Journalist, Rajat Sharma, has tendered his resignation from the Presidential post of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA). His 16-month tenure came to an end after it was officially announced by DDCA in their recent tweet.

Sharma also recited that although he faced many barriers during his tenure from the opposition. But, he always worked with transparency. However, now it will not be possible for him to carry on with it that is why he decided to resign with immediate effect.
“In my endeavour, though I faced many roadblocks, opposition and oppression, just to keep me from discharging my duties in fair and transparent. That’s why I have decided to call it a day and hereby tender my resignation to the Apex Council from the post of President, DDCA with immediate effect,” he added.
