The BCCI and Lodha Panel tussle is on the verge of being back to square one. After the complete overhaul of previous administration headed by Anurag Thakur, the new administration too posed technical difficulties in implementing the recommendations. Adding fresh impetus in favor of administrative reforms, Arun Jaitley, the finance minister of India commented the Board not to oppose the Court’s order.
Mr. Jaitley is also an eminent senior lawyer with massive experience of law and governance apart from being the defense, finance, and corporate affairs minister of the country. He also headed BCCI as the vice-president previously. The minister was also the head of DDCA as the president. There were several occasions in the past where former BCCI presidents, N Srinivasan, Shashank Manohar, and Anurag Thakur asked his stance to tackle different complications and roadblocks.
Lately, BCCI formed a ‘Special Committee” in order to point out the point of difficulties in implementing the Lodha recommendation. The committee is supposed to present a detailed report to Supreme Court on the issues of the recommendation. In fact, it will be a list of points where BCCI and the Lodha recommendations do not agree. As reported, the committee listed out the top three states as one-state-one-vote, three men selection committee and the cooling off period of three years. The committee is supposed to identify the ‘critical points’ that is standing in way of the court’s order.
Arun Jaitley asked the committee to emphasis on the top three or four suggestions of the panel. The apex court will discuss the report before 14th July, the scheduled date of the hearing. Per reports Jaitley too wants the court to reconsider the cooling off period. On age cap, the minister has no objections as he found the limit of 70 years “good enough.” The finance and defense minister was stern in his stance. He made it clear that BCCI would pay a high price, if it does not abide by the court’s order.
