After a long tussle over the Lodha Reforms, The Supreme Court Of India took harsh steps sacking the BCCI president and secretary from their positions for not complying with the court orders.
The Court ordered to remove Anurag Thakur from the post of BCCI President and Ajay Shirke from the post of BCCI Secretary.
The court also issued show cause notices to Thakur and Shirke asking why contempt and perjury proceedings be not initiated against both of them. In an July 18 order by the court, most of BCCI office bearer were ineligible to carry on and the Lodha panel had asked the court to remove them.
The order comes after Lodha Committee’s third status report which was submitted on November 14, asking for the disqualification of office-bearers of the BCCI and all state associations. The Supreme Court is also set to replace the top brass of the cricket board with panel of administrators. The court has sought new names for the same. The next hearing will be on January 19.
