New Delhi: Three days after vacating the post of Delhi and District Cricket Association’s (DDCA) president, senior journalist, Rajat Sharma is back as the president of DDCA.
Rajat Sharma assumed charge following the directive from DDCA Ombudsman Justice (retd) Badar Surrez Ahmed. The Ombudsman rejected the resignation on Sunday.
In a letter to the Apex Council on Monday, Rajat Sharma stated, “Pursuant to my resignation on 16.11.2019, certain members approached Hon. Ombudsman who, in an interim order dated 17.11.2019 has put in abeyance my resignation and directed me to continue as president, DDCA. Hon. Ombudsman has fixed 27.11.2019 to formally hear the matter.”
Notably, soon after the resignation of DDCA President Rajat Sharma, several other members also stepped down from their respective posts on Saturday. They included Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ravikant Chopra, GM cricket operations, Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) members Yashpal Sharma and Sunil Valson.
