Supreme Court postpones announcement of RCA results
The Supreme Court Postponed the results of Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) election results to March 4th. Lalit Modi is widely tipped to win the results hands down.
The BCCI had urged the apex court to hear it before opening the envelope and declaring the result. The Court has now set March 4 as the next date of hearing on the issue.
“I am disappointed that yet again we have to wait for the results to be opened due to BCCI wanting more time to explain their stand on how they should be allowed to interfere with the democratic process. So I guess I will have to wait,” Modi added.
The BCCI has been firmly opposing Modi’s return to Indian cricket administration, with lawyers claiming that Rajasthan faces expulsion from the Board if Modi becomes RCA president.
Modi had contested for the president’s post in the RCA election held in Jaipur on December 19 and was widely expected to win.
The BCCI in September 2013 had imposed a life ban n the UK-based businessman for alleged irregularities when he headed the IPL from 2008 to 2010.
