New Delhi: Jan 6, 2014

 

The fate of former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi, who contested the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) polls, is likely to be known on January 17 with the Supreme Court on Monday saying that it would open the sealed enveloped containing the results on that day.

 

A bench headed by Justice AR Dave also agreed to hear the objections raised by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over Modi contesting the December 19, 2013 election before declaring the results if Modi comes out as a winner.

 

BCCI pleaded that Modi should not have been allowed to contest the election as he has been disqualified by the Board for life from being associated with any cricket association.

 

The bench, however, said the issue raised by the Board will arise only if Modi wins the election and if it happens then it will hear the plea of BCCI before declaring the results.

 

“Is he [Modi] more powerful that he will certainly be elected,” the bench said when the Board insisted that it hear its plea against Modi.

 

It said that the sealed envelope containing results of election will be opened on January 17 and all arguments will be heard only on that day.

 

The BCCI has challenged the Rajasthan Sports Act 2005 allowing Modi to contest the RCA presidential election despite being banned for life by the Board.

 

The apex court had on November 20, 2013 made its retired judge Justice NM Kasliwal as a principal observer to oversee the elections.

 

It had said that “individual members shall not cast their votes and the result of the election shall be subject to the final outcome of the appeal which is pending before this court”.

 

The court had passed the order on a petition filed by former BCCI treasurer and ex-RCA secretary Kishore Rungta seeking the court’s direction for appointment of a retired judge to conduct RCA elections.

 

The Board had on December 28, 2013 decided to approach the Supreme Court.

 

The decision to intervene was taken at an emergent working committee meeting of the Board to discuss the possible implications of Modi’s re-entry into the RCA.

 

Modi was allowed to fight for the post of RCA president in the December 19 elections held under the supervision of a Supreme Court-appointed observer.

 

Modi was slapped with a life ban on September 25 last year by the BCCI after its disciplinary committee found him guilty on eight charges of “indiscipline and misconduct”.

 

The BCCI disciplinary committee, comprising Arun Jaitley, and Jyotiraditya Scindia, had submitted a 134-page report in July, 2013, in which it had found Modi guilty of financial irregularities, indiscipline and “actions detrimental to the interest of the BCCI.”
