first_imgThe Lalit Modi faction has welcomed the dissolution of Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) by the Registrar of Societies and the appointment of an ad-hoc body in its place.The dissolution happened under the Sports Act, which empowers the Registrar to dissolve an executive committee, if there have been some irregularities. The action was initiated after the Registrar of Societies investigated the complaint by RCA secretary Rajendra Singh Nandu and treasurer Pinkesh Porwal had complained to the Registrar of Societies Neeraj K Pawan.”Since Rajasthan is the only state where Sports Act governs, there is no other state like that in India. So, under its provisions, me along with treasurer Pinkesh Porwal… a total of 16 district members registered a complaint with the Registrar of Societies that cricket activities have not happened here, which is open flouting of Sports Act, the audit of accounts that we have to do every year, did not happen and the rest irregularities that were there with regard to the bills, about that. The Registrar did the work of investigating two out of three points and found the RCA guilty and so far, even the Constitution was not registered as required under the Supreme Court’s Lodha panel. The Registrar has done the complete investigation. The investigation went on for 50-55 days. Enquiry officer conducted the enquiry. The Registrar himself gave two notices and in the end, he found guilty…”, Rajendra Singh Nandu said to India Today.Ruchir Modi, son of Lalit Modi welcomed the dissolution and the appointment of an ad-hoc body.advertisementIn a statement, Ruchir Modi mentioned, “The RCA is an institution built over the years. But, under the myopic leadership of CP Joshi, it’s prestige became all-time low. He had an excellent platform to develop the sport in the state. Instead, he utilised the time in politicking and lowering the esteem of the RCA. His run-ins with Hon Secretary Shri Nandu was uncalled for. He should have applied more thought on taking RCA as a body and as a team forward. Joshi has to introspect and realise the damage he has caused. All the work done by the previous administrators has now been wasted. We wholeheartedly support the appointment of an ad-hoc body to set the ills of the state association right. We will offer unconditional support to the new set-up. It is time for Rajasthan cricket to reboot and start afresh with the players’ interest.ALSO READ: Govt providing protection to ‘4Ms’ — Lalit Modi, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi, Vijay Mallya: Conglast_img
