Chennai: Dec 28, 2013

 

The Rajasthan Cricket Association today claimed that its representative Mehmood Abdi was ill-treated and not allowed to attend the Board of Control for Cricket in India Working Committee meeting to explain how his client and banned former Indian Premier League commissioner, Lalit Modi was allowed to contest RCA elections.

 

In an e-mail to BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel, RCA Secretary KK Sharma sought an apology for the way Abdi was handled by the security personnel at the hotel where the meeting was being held and for the embarrassment it caused to the state unit.

 

Interestingly, RCA is not a member of the BCCI’s working committee.

 

“I am completely distressed by the manner our representative has been treated. Minimum courtesy demands that you would place our request before the Working Committee and inform us if we are going to be permitted to present our case or not. If a decision has already been taken to prevent us from not allowing us to present our case, the same should have been conveyed to us earlier so that we could have avoided embarrassment to our association,” Sharma said.

 

“We would also seek an apology from the person who had instructed security (bouncers) to prevent our representative from entering the meeting room. Please note this could not have been the decision of Working Committee because our representative was prevented from entering the room before the meeting started. Mehmood Abdi is still waiting in the hotel.

 

“Please let us know your response immediately. We expect that minimum courtesy that is due to a full board member would be extended to us,” he added.

 

Abdi was yesterday appointed a representative by the RCA to present its case before the BCCI.

 

The BCCI’s top brass assembled here today for an Emergent Working Committee meeting 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. The results of the polls are expected to be known on January 6 when the matter relating to the RCA comes up for hearing before the Supreme Court.
