Rajasthan High Court scraps the no confidence motion against Lalit Modi at the RCA: The Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) though does not have an official existence in the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) affiliated associations. But, the RCA continues to stay in highlights for its internal politics and election issues. The Rajasthan High Court today in a decision has scrapped the no confidence motion passed in the RCA against Lalit Modi and has given Amin Pathan the proposer 30 days’ time to pass a fresh motion.
Amin Pathan according to the report in ESPNCricinfo had taken over officially as RCA chief passing a no confidence motion in the association against Modi who resides in London since exiled from the BCCI. The court order said that Pathan had not served a 21 days’ notice before he introduced and passed the motion which makes it illegal.
Rajasthan High Court has directed the chairman of the Rajasthan Sports Council who was appointed as in charge of the RCA operations to appoint Lalit Modi as the chief if Pathan and aides fail to introduce and pass a no-confidence motion till the deadline period of 30 days.
Lalit Modi who remains to be a taboo name in Indian cricket administration since he was outstared from the Board in April 2010 following allegations and findings of him being involved in financial misdeeds in the Indian Premier League which he was the Commissioner of.
Since he contested the RCA elections and the BCCI had banned his entry into administrative position for life term the Indian board declared that it disassociates the Rajasthan association for violation of its directive and allowing Modi in.
Mehmood Ali a major player in the Lalit Modi camp told ESPNCricinfo that even if they successfully pass the motion they will have to go ahead and announce fresh elections which will be considered a winning situation for them. The other camp is yet to come out and issue a statement or their version on the court order.
