One state, two sets of general bodies, JKCA explains

NEW DELHI: The Committee of Administrators (CoA) missive asking all state units to furnish their members list brought to the fore the membership issue plaguing the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA).
Two sets of list were submitted to CoA making a tally of 20 and now it’s emerging that the group which had been ruling and accused of siphoning off funds from the association prepared one of the lists apart from the ruling body under the leadership of Iqbal Shah.JKCA Logo
“The earlier regime which are responsible for misappropriation of fund is responsible for sending out the list to CoA when the ruling group was authorised to do so. We have sent out the names of 64 general body members (working committee), which is also recognised by CoA,” Shah told TOI on Saturday.
The JKCA has also decided to embrace the Lodha committee reforms after the association sorts out the membership problem with the newly appointed ombudsman Justice Iqbal Ahmed Ansari, the former chief Justice of Patna High Court. “The day our membership problem is sorted out by Justice (retired) Ansari, we will implement the Lodha reforms immediately,” Shah said.
This was the same association which was waiting in the wings like other state bodies to see BCCI implementing the Lodha reforms. “Our association is more important than anything else. There were also 14 government votes in J&K and the matter was sub-judice and therefore our association took time to decide on the reforms,” Shah said while explaining why JKCA took time to decide on the reforms.
“If you look at the last Supreme Court order, it clearly tells BCCI to implement the reforms as far as practicable and thereafter it shall be debated as to how he scheme of things can be considered so that cricket remains nearly perfect,” Shah said while explaining why JKCA didn’t implement the reforms earlier.
“Tomorrow if the apex court finds that BCCI’s five objectionable reforms aren’t acceptable, the states would have to obey the SC judgement and there is no way anyone can hide from it,” Shah added.
