Mumbai: The Supreme Court-appointed Justice Lodha committee will meet on August 28 to discuss the future course of action regarding Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). BCCI has roped in retired Justice Markandey Katju to study the report. Katju advised BCCI to file a review petition challenging the judgement.
“In the light of several complaints received, Lodha Committee will have an emergent meeting on Sunday 28 August in New Delhi,” a source close to the panel told PTI today.
Asked about the nature of the complaints received, the source said: “That’s confidential. The venue of the meeting is undecided.”
BCCI have also announced their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on September 21st and committee might use its discretion and power to declare the AGM “null and void”.
The BCCI is set to submit its first Compliance Report with regard to implementing the 11-point reforms by October 15.
However, it was decided during the working committee meeting that was held last Monday that BCCI is closely monitoring the situation and is waiting for review petition hearing.
Till the SC verdict is out, the advice to affiliated units is to go slow on the reforms regarding change in constitution of state units.
The fight and battle will continue and it will be interesting to see what happens in near future. One thing is sure that BCCI will use every legal remedy to fight for its autonomous status and constitution.
