Ashok Gehlot, Joshi lock horns over Rajasthan cricket bodies

first_imgChief Minister Ashok Gehlot backed Sports Council of Rajasthan is targeting Rajasthan Cricket Association , which is headed by his rival CP Joshi – Union Minister for Surface Transport.The sports council is headed by Shiv Charan Mali, who is considered very close to Gehlot. He was appointed as its head on Joshi’s suggestion as a bargain for withdrawing from the race for election to RCA president in favour of Joshi.The Council has declined to give RCA stadium for Irani Trophy matches due in fourth week of September on the grounds that the memorandum of understanding between the two has expired on July 21.RCA moved court of metropolitan magistrate in Jaipur demanding that it be allowed to use the stadium as government has given permission to go ahead with the MoU. But the court dismissed it. Now, RCA plans to appeal against this order.The Council has in the past tried to create hurdles in functioning of RCA on petty issues by locking the gates of the stadium or refusing to let repair works done before crucial matches. It is because Mali’s first love was to head cash-rich RCA.Joshi is known for his erratic handling of the RCA. At times he takes full control of the RCA and at other times, he leaves it entirely to the RCA secretary KK Sharma, who is also his man.RCA has been facing problems in its financial matter of late. The Public Accounts Committee of Rajasthan assembly has ordered it to pay Rs 4 crore dues to police and home department in lieu of security provided for the matches. Recently, RCA’s accounts were frozen by Income Tax department to claim its dues.advertisementlast_img read more
