BCCI Elections

Three powerful cricket associations - Tamil Nadu (TNCA), Haryana (HCA) and Maharashtra (MCA) who have been "determined to be non compliant" by the Committee of Administrators (COA) and hence omitted from the Final Electoral Roll -- will now approach the Courts to get a stay on the BCCI Electoral Officer's "decision", in a bid  to attend the BCCI's AGM & participate in the voting process on October 23.

Republic TV is in possession of both BCCI's Original Draft Electoral Roll (which had all 38 names) and the Final Electoral Roll -- (which axed eight full member associations out of 38). Republic TV has found out a copy of Electoral Officer N Gopalaswami's summary findings on non eligibility of 8 full member's disqualification.

While TNCA, HCA, and MCA were found to be "determined to be non -compliant by the COA" the three government institutions -- Railways, Services, and Association of Indian Universities were barred as they failed to form a players’ association. UPCA was found to ineligible as its nominee Rajiv Shukla was still under a cooling-off period while Manipur's was disqualified as its nominee was a sitting MLA.

Sources indicate that all the eight full members who were barred for non-compliance are going to approach the Courts which may put the BCCI AGM and elections on hold or postpone the same.

Former BCCI president N Srinivasan controlled TNCA had elected his daughter Rupa Maiyappan as its president andSS Ramaswamy as its nominee while BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary controlled HCA had appointed Mrinal Ojha to represent them for the AGM.  Both of them had shot off a strongly worded reply to the COA for the show cause notice taking a tough stand that it was not in CoA’s authority to debar any state unit as their job was to merely file a status report on compliance.
