Former HCA presidents focus on corrective measures, Affiliation election in particular assembly

Former BCCI president and India off-spinner N. Shivlal Yadav, together with former HCA presidents G. Vinod, Arshad Ayub, and former Secretaries Ok. John Manoj and T. Seshnarayan, knowledgeable the media on Monday that that they had convened a Particular Common Assembly on December 11 on the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad.

Shivlal stated that the one-point agenda of the assembly is to nominate a Returning Officer to make sure the method of early elections would start.

“Really, it’s the obligation of Azhar (former India captain Mohd Azharuddin) to convene this assembly after his time period as President
expired in September this yr. I don’t know what’s the hurt in convening the assembly,” Shivlal stated.

“We are only asking for conducting the elections and nothing else right now,” he stated.

“But, it is obvious that things are not right in the HCA administration and the honourable Justice (Retd) Nisar Ahmad Kakru (chairman of the Supreme Court appointed panel to look into the affairs of HCA) report to the Supreme Court highlighting these things was simple proof of this,” he stated.

“Azhar just can’t keep on reminding all that he played for India and hence knew about cricket better than others. Even we represented India. Playing for India doesn’t exempt anyone from discharging the Constitutional obligations,” Shivlal stated.

“Importantly, neither myself, Arshad nor Vinod would have any role in the election process as and when it is initiated. We are here in the interest of the players who are at the receiving end for the last three years,” he stated.

“Neither do I know Justice Kakru nor did I meet him. But, I have the highest respect for Justice Kakru,” he stated.

Shivlal, who was additionally former HCA President, stated the BCCI had no position within the HCA affairs. “It will not interfere and in a worse case if things come to such a pass then the HCA would meet the same fate as Rajasthan Cricket Association.

G. Vinod appealed to all of the affiliated HCA Secretaries to struggle for Constitutional rights and guarantee early elections are held to take corrective measures.

Arshad stated there was no dispute about membership of any non-public golf equipment and all disputes have been cleared in 1993 itself because of a communication from the then Municipal Company of Hyderabad.

John Manoj stated it was ironic that membership of some golf equipment was being disputed now by those that received the elections with the identical voters listing final time. “I believe there are some vested interests in the SC panel formed to take care of HCA affairs to allow Azhar to continue with his illegal actions,” Seshnarayan alleged.
