State associations hail SC order on Lodha reforms
Various state associations, including Mumbai and Saurashtra, today hailed the Supreme Court's decision to reinstate their voting rights in the BCCI.
The apex court today modified its earlier order on the 'one state, one vote' policy for BCCI members, reinstating the memberships of Mumbai, Saurashtra, Vadodara and Vidarbha, whose voting rights were taken away by the Lodha committee.
"It's a welcome judgement which has come, which has done justice to all these associations which have contributed a lot to development of cricket in all these years and it would have been a travesty of justice had such members been only full members by rotation," Jaiswal told PTI.
"Imagine Mumbai is left out or Vidarbha, which is Ranji and Irani Trophy winner (is) not a full member (of the Board), it could have been a travesty of justice, so the Supreme Court has corrected that and has done proper justice for development of cricket."
"It is welcoming to keep the full membership in BCCI. We are thankful to the Supreme Court," said Worah.
"This is amazing. Its an acknowledgement of the contribution. Baroda has contributed so many players and this a recognition of the contribution of Baroda to Indian cricket," Parikh said.
"This will enable SCA to continue its voice for the growth, development and significant contribution to national and international cricket," said Shah.
"We are thankful to the Supreme Court for restoring our voting right. Mumbai has a rich cricketing legacy and its nice to get our vote back. It is a historical judgement," MCA Joint Secretary Prof Dr Unmesh Khanvilkar said.(This story has not been edited by Devdiscourse staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)
