Lodha clarifies on nine-year tenure

July 22, 2016 02:50 am | Updated November 17, 2021 05:39 am IST - NEW DELHI:

The Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee on Thursday clarified to the State associations that office-bearers, who have cumulatively or separately completed nine years in office before July 18, were not exempt from the order.

They, too, are barred from contesting elections.

The committee has sent a mail to BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke, asking them to intimate the associations in this regard.

A number of State associations had asked for clarification on whether individuals who have cumulatively completed nine years will be disqualified from becoming office-bearers again and whether the nine-year disqualification period commences from the date of judgment (18.07.2016) or includes tenures as office-bearers prior to that date.

Special Correspondent from Kolkata adds:

CAB elections cancelled The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) on Thursday cancelled its forthcoming annual general meeting (AGM) and elections, scheduled for July 31, in the wake of the Supreme Court order.

“Since we were left with just two days (before the deadline for the submission of nominations), we had to take this decision.

“Till the next elections, the current panel will continue,” added CAB president Sourav Ganguly.
