Srinagar, June 15: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Tuesday appointed a three-member local committee to look after Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA).
The committee comprises of Brigadier Anil Gupta, spokesperson of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in J&K, Sunil Sethi, a Jammu-based advocate who is also a BJP spokesperson, and Mithun Manhas, former J&K captain.
“The committee will look after the affairs and report to BCCI,” Arun Dhumal, the BCCI Treasurer, confirmed to KSW.
Earlier, in March, the J&K High Court had handed over the affairs of JKCA to BCCI who then gave the charge to Rajeev Shukla and Arun Dhumal to form a committee.
When asked what was the thought process behind appointed someone from a political party, Dhumal said:
“We have to look after administrative affairs. There’s one legal person and one cricketing person as well,” he said.
