New Delhi: Jan 2, 2014

 

In a move to stall former Indian Premier League (IPL) chief Lalit Modi from staging a comeback to Indian cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday moved the apex court against his election as the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) president.

 

The RCA elections were held Dec 19, 2013, under the watch of the apex court appointed former judge N.M. Kasliwal.

 

Modi contested for president of the RCA as the state cricketing panel rejected the objection of the BCCI to his candidature.

 

The result of the RCA elections are likely to be announced on Jan 6, when the court may take up for hearing RCA former secretary Kishore Rungta’s plea challenging the Rajasthan Sports Act, 2005, that was read by Modi’s supporters in his favour to contest the election.

 

The Act had taken away the individual voting rights of the members, and Modi’s supporters said the RCA elections were governed by it and not by the BCCI rules.

 

The BCCI on Dec 28, 2013, in a statement said that it would implead itself before the apex court in Rungta’s plea challenging the Rajasthan Sports Act, 2005.

 

The BCCI, which had imposed a life ban on Modi in September 2013, has contended that his association with the cricketing body would affect the image of the popular sports and the apex cricketing organisation.

 

Modi was banned for life for financial irregularities while he presided over the IPL during 2008 to 2010.
