The BCCI, under instructions from Committee of Administrators (CoA), has petitioned the Indore bench of the High Court of Madhya Pradesh to appoint an administrator or CoA to run the affairs of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA).
The BCCI is a respondent in a writ petition — filed by MPCA Life Members Dr. Liladhar Paliwal and Rakesh Bhargava — seeking the appointment of administrator or CoA to implement the Justice Lodha Panel reforms in cricket. In a 10-page affidavit, the BCCI has said it joins the petitioner to appoint administrators. The BCCI responded to the petition on June 26.
In the affidavit, the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri has recalled the various timelines issued to the BCCI members to implement the Lodha reforms, accepted by the Apex Court on July 18, 2016.
Johri has also said the High Courts of Delhi, Jammu & Kashmir, Hyderabad and Bombay have already intervened by appointing administrators to run the affairs.
