Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai in an exclusive interview to Republic TV has said that more than 30 associations are now on compliance but some associations like MP, Karnataka, and Chattisgarh have come forward and addressed their issues which have been clarified by the CoA. Meanwhile, the meeting was not attended by the cricket associations of Haryana and Tamil Nadu. As of now, the CoA had no clue about it and refused to comment on the same. However, as per the numbers of associations they are hopeful to hold the elections on the given date. Vinod Rai was also quoted as saying that the observer's rule is only to observe and not to monitor the election. Rai also added that CoA have no role in decision-making. At the same time, it was also announced that the CoA will be conducting another meeting in Delhi on Monday.
Republic TV has learned that the BCCI elections will be held on time i.e. October 22. although, there are a few state associations that are trying to delay the procedures and are creating confusion. It was learned that Haryana and Tamil Nadu associations did not attend the meeting as per the compliance of the Supreme Court and Lodha Committee reports.
The BCCI constitution has changed and therefore, all the state associations' constitutions also need to be changed. Over there, the state associations are yet to come to terms with the basic things that have happened in the Lodha commission with regards to the constitution changes which include the age bar, tenure bar and the cooling period with the different BCCI officials. At the same time, some of the state associations do not wish to come to these terms. However, the CoA chief Vinod Rai has clearly mentioned that if any association does not fall in the line of compliance with the Supreme Court order and the Lodha Committee commission report then they will be barred to hold the elections which means that the state committee will not get the right to elect the members of the AGM and the elections will not be held as per their wish.
