While reworking on the Constitution of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the Lodha Committee clearly mentioned that conflict of interest is a sphere that needs to be taken under consideration for improved administration of the player’s game.
This scanner has been run on the performance of a few former cricketers like- Sourav Ganguly (Current BCCI President). In Virat’s case, the objection has been raised by Sanjeev Gupta (Member of Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association). Recently, Gupta wrote a letter to D.K Jain, Ethics Officer.
In the past, Sanjeev Gupta raised ‘conflict of Interest’ issues against veterans like- V.V.S Laxman, Ganguly, and Sachin Tendulkar.
The mail was accessed by IANS, and it stated- “Virat Kohli is occupying two posts at a time in blatant violation to BCCI Rule 38(4) approved by Supreme Court Of India. As such, he must relinquish his one post at once in compliance, his two posts are covered as under – A – 38(4)(a) – Player. B – 38(4)( o ) – Contractual Entity, to be read with BCCI Rule 38(1) (iii).
I humbly solicit Learned Ethics Officer to forthwith pass the order directing Virat Kohli to give away one of his posts, at once, in compliance to the BCCI Constitution dated 21.08.18 Rule Number 38(4) (Approved by Apex Court ).
My sole pure intent behind filing each & every precise/factual complaint is for 100% compliance of Lodha Reforms & Supreme Court-approved BCCI Constitution without any personal agenda & without any vested interest. I am least bothered about the persona/aura of the individual, as I am only bothered for 10 % compliance. No individual, how Rich / Big / Influential / Powerful one is, can never be above the law of the Land. ‘The Supreme Court’ verdict, everybody has to Respect, Accept & 100% comply forthwith & fall in line.” Source: Times of India
