SC show cause to BCCI: Why Lodha panel recommendations not implemented

http://www.indiantelevision.com/sites/drupal7.indiantelevision.co.in/files/styles/smartcrop_800x800/public/images/tv-images/2017/08/23/RM-Lodha-800x800.jpg?itok=bZ6BKieM

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court has issued a show-cause notice to BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary to explain as to why its order on the Justice R M Lodha committee recommendations has not yet been implemented. 

A three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra was told by the apex court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) that none of the Lodha panel recommendations or the court's directions have been implemented. 

Senior advocate Gopal Subramanium, assisting the court as amicus curiae, said that three BCCI office-bearers -- C K Khanna, Amitabh Chaudhary and Anirudh Chaudhary, were the persons responsible for implementing the recommendations and the court's directions. The trio has been asked to personally appear in the court on 19 September.

Taking into account the court's order dated 2 January that ousted Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke from their board positions, the CoA requested the bench for the removal of Choudhary, Chaudhry and Khanna.

In the absence of a working committee, the CoA noted, administrators and not the office-bearers were needed to be given the authority to manage the board's affairs. 

In a landmark judgment on 18 July, 2016, the apex court had approved majority of the recommendations put forth by the committee led by retired chief justice RM Lodha. The BCCI was given a deadline of six months to implement the accepted reforms.
