Caught off guard by the Committee of Administrator’s  (CoA) request to remove Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary has expressed his shock. Choudhary has earlier praised the CoA for being transparent and fair in trying to implement the Justice RM Lodha-led panel’s recommendation. The CoA in their fifth report to the Supreme Court has asked the apex-court to remove BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary, Choudhary and President CK Khanna from their post for not complying to the lodha recommendations.

Speaking to cricketnext, Choudhary said, “I am at a loss of words and don’t know what to say and if I should say anything because I have tried to set the ball rolling and do what is to the best of my ability. In fact, I said it publicly as well that there is no point dilly-dallying and we should get cracking. In the last meeting as well, that was my motive. After that, all I can say is that let the court decide what they feel is best.” Even Khanna is trying to get his head over this request of CoA’s request. “I think it is best you speak to the secretary in this matter, I do not wish to comment on this, he said.

The CoA on Wednesday took a jibe at BCCI for deliberately misconstruing the apex court’s order to bar CEO Rahul Johri and the legal team from attending the Special General Meeting (SGM) held on July 26.
