SC rejects BCCI’s review plea on Lodha suggestions
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday quashed BCCI’s review petition on questioning implementations of Justice Lodha panel recommendations.
The BCCI sought a reexamination of apex court’s July 18 verdict which directed the cricketing board to implement Justice Lodha’s suggestions on massive structural reforms in the body.
Hearing the case, a bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice S A Bobde said the court has examined the grounds urged in support of the prayer for review and that there was no need for any recall of the record.
In the petition the BCCI had demanded for re-examination of the verdict besides asking for an open court hearing. It accused the panel of suggesting unreasonable measures on the autonomous body which was already occupied by legislators.
Notably, on July 18, the apex court accepted major suggestions of Justice Lodha and co which included bar on ministers and civil servants and those above 70 from becoming members of state or national cricketing board, a CAG committee nominee in BCCI, one –state-one vote.
