Petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing case, Aditya Verma has written to Lodha Committee panel secretary Gopal Shankarnarayan alleging non-compliance of the Supreme Court order by the BCCI with Ratnakar Shetty and M. V. Sridhar, who had already completed more than nine years in their state bodies.
Shetty, a long time administrator, was the joint secretary of the Mumbai Cricket Association from 1996 to 2005 (nine years). He was also the treasurer of MCA from 2005-06 and 2010-11 (two years) followed by vice-president from 2011-2012.
Sridhar, a Hyderabad Ranji stalwart, was the joint secretary from 2000-06 and then secretary from 2009-10 and 2012-14.
In his letter Verma termed Shetty as "a man of questionable conduct and character" referring to the allegedly false affidavit that he filed in Anurag Thakur perjury case. Verma's plea to panel secretary refers to the apex court directive which makes both Shetty and Sridhar "ineligible" and appealed to issue directions that will prevent both of them from discharging their duties in current capacity.
