CoA worried as KSCA amends constitution again
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has filed a petition in the apex court seeking clarity on the order passed on Sept 20, which was based on the application of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA).
The CoA has cited in its petition on Monday that other state associations, which unlike TNCA had registered their new constitutions as per Justice Lodha committee's guidelines, are now lining up to amend their constitutions now.
The petition has said that Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) informed the CoA that it amended its constitution in view of the September 20 order and submitted it for registration. In its petition, the CoA asked for clarification on how the SC permitted the applicant TNCA to hold elections to the post of assistant secretary.
CoA pleaded that TNCA elections should be held for the five posts mentioned and approved in the BCCI constitution which was registered on August 9, 2018.
"Because of the out-of-the-context and opportunistic interpretation of the order, many associations who have registered their constitution and some of them who have even conducted their elections want to amend their constitutions in derogation of the judgments passed by this court," CoA mentioned. CoA has claimed that Supreme Court's "direction is being erroneously and mischievously interpreted by certain state associations".
