The Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has instructed the BCCI staff not to implement the resolutions adopted at the requisitioned Special General Meeting (SGM) convened by the BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary. The SGM had considered a ten-item agenda in New Delhi on June 22.

In a note addressed to ‘allstaffs@bcci.tv’ and copied to the three BCCI office bearers (acting President C.K.Khanna, Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry and acting Secretary Choudhary) and also to the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri, the CoA has said: “The CoA has received a document from the acting secretary setting out various resolutions that were purportedly passed during a meeting held at the Taj Mahal Hotel, New Delhi on 22nd June 2018. The said meeting was convened and held in violation of the directions dated 15th March 2018 issued by the CoA. Accordingly, it is directed that no office bearer/committee member/employee/consultant/ retainer/ service provider shall in any way  implement, act further to or in aid of any resolutions that may have been passed during the aforesaid meeting.’’

The BCCI’s acting Secretary had asserted that the SGM was convened following a requisition from a number of members and it’s the will of the members to consider important cricket–related matters, whereas the CoA felt that Choudhary had not adhered to the process as stated in the directions it had issued on March 15.

The CoA had said that “Notice of any meeting of any committee/ sub-committee or the General Body of the BCCI shall be issued only with the prior approval of the CoA and that while seeking such approval, the convener of the relevant committee/ sub-committee and/or the Acting President/ Acting Secretary, as the case may be, shall also provide a draft notice and draft agenda for the proposed meeting as well as any related documents that are circulated and/or intended to be circulated to the persons/ members entitled to attend such meeting.’’
