Kirti Azad slams DDCA for latest resolution

According to Azad, who is also a Member of Parliament, "The ingenious resolution, amongst a bevy of resolutions over the last three years, will signal two things: 1) Hon Supreme Court’s last hearing on Lodha Committee matter and 2) The last date by which ROC has to submit their report in the round tripping matter where (former DDCA president) S. P. Bansal had spirited out Rs. 1.55 crore through three vendors (who actually were only front companies operating for Bansal)."

Azad hoped for justice through CBI and the Supreme Court. “All the manipulation and backdated, manufactured, inserted/substituted paperwork will come unstuck,” he said.   -  special arrangement

Former India all-rounder Kirti Azad on Tuesday slammed the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for attempting to pass a resolution under duress to absolve some office-bearers of wrong doings.

“I am amused to see the latest resolution that you are attempting to pass before 30th June, and the hectic activities that are going on behind the scenes,” he said here in a statement.

According to Azad, who is also a Member of Parliament, “The ingenious resolution, amongst a bevy of resolutions over the last three years, will signal two things: 1) Hon Supreme Court’s last hearing on Lodha Committee matter and 2) The last date by which ROC has to submit their report in the round tripping matter where (former DDCA president) S. P. Bansal had spirited out Rs. 1.55 crore through three vendors (who actually were only front companies operating for Bansal).”

Azad alleged that the list of signatories was being sought to be expanded with the entry of Vinod Garg, an acolyte of BCCI vice-president C. K. Khanna. “Garg will sign on the dotted line which will ease the operation for the office bearers to take out money, the moment it hits the DDCA accounts,” Azad claimed.

Azad pointed out, “The CBI already seized the fake companies and all the three companies through which Bansal spirited away Rs 1.55 crore are merely front companies which were being paid crores of rupees in the name of repair and maintenance, by DDCA. The attempt to withdraw all police complaints against one another by DDCA office bearers is hilarious to say the least. “

Elaborating on the issue, Azad asserted, “First, senior office bearers filed cross complaints with the police alleging amongst other things, acts of cheating, swindling, criminal conspiracy, opening a bank account through forgery etc. Now, seemingly in an understanding that is the need of the hour, it is being mutually decided to bury the hatchet for the time being.”

Azad hoped for justice through CBI and the Supreme Court. “All the manipulation and backdated, manufactured, inserted/substituted paperwork will come unstuck,” he concluded.
