Committee of Administrators (CoA) will submit its draft of the new constitution to the Supreme Court. With the impasse over the implementation of the said reforms carrying on, the apex court had directed the CoA to draft a new constitution for the board, one that will include the acceptance of the Lodha reforms.
CoA chief Vinod Rai confirmed that the committee’s work on the constitution was complete and ready to be handed over to the SC.
“We have completed our work and we will definitely submit the draft constitution in the Supreme Court much before the next scheduled hearing on September 19. There will not be a sixth status report,” Rai said on Friday (September 8).
The CoA will incorporate the Lodha committee’s recommendations in the new constitution. The SC had, through the Lodha committee, sought to usher in reform of BCCI to make cricket administration transparent and accountable. Nothing has been complied with so far. Our order has to be implemented or face contempt. This shuttling and re-shuttling of our order like in a badminton game cannot be allowed,” the court had said in a hearing on August 23, when it also issued show-cause notices to the top brass of the BCCI.
