SC Removes Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke as president and secretary of BCCI

SC Removes Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke as president and secretary of BCCI
The Supreme Court had on July 18 made it binding on the BCCI to implement the Lodha committee proposals that, among others, included age and tenure caps, one-man-one-post and a one-state-one-vote policy.

On Monday, Supreme Court bench said all office bearers who did not fulfill the recommendations will “demit and cease to hold office”.

The bench will appoint an observer in its next hearing on January 19. The main task of the observer will be to make the BCCI affiliates falls in line with the Lodha reforms. The court has sought the help of senior lawyers Fali Nariman and Gopal Subramanium in selecting the BCCI observer.

In   a historical move Supreme Court of India removed Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke as the president and secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
Constantly both always opposed the reforms which were important to remove the corruption from BCCI and bring transparency.
Till the court names an observer, the BCCI will be run by its senior-most vice-president while the joint-secretary Amitabh Choudhary will be the interim secretary. Both will have to give an undertaking that they will follow the Lodha reforms.

Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke paid the price for defying the SC order which had been passed in July last year.

Excellent move by Supreme Court of India, everyone needs to obey the orders given by the Supreme court of India including politicians.
