They are CAG of India, also known as the Comptroller & Auditor General. This committee has asked the Supreme Court, the top court of the nation to relieve from the BCCI’s Apex Committee. They have requested on the ground that it is “unable” to function as an independent voice. Also, it is unable to carry out the primary job assigned to it. Its primary job was to provide financial oversight and the state associations to the BCCI. This move has come on July 17 soon after its representative on the panel has raised a few questions. Questions have risen this week over the attendance of Jay Shah, BCCI secretary for the council meeting.
The incorporation of the CAG official on the Apex Council of the BCCI, the state affiliations and the IPL Governing Council, was one of the hugest proposals of the RM Lodha Committee, affirmed by the court in its original request in 2016. The target, the Lodha Committee said and the court concurred, was the CAG candidate would “guarantee straightforwardness and budgetary oversight” in the working of the BCCI.
The Apex Council involves nine individuals, of whom the CAG official is the sole autonomous figure
By chance, the CAG recorded its appeal on July 3, a day prior Bharadwaj conveyed the email to BCCI. The CAG said its delegate was entrusted with a vocation outside their ability.
In 2016, the BCCI had unequivocally contradicted the arrangement of the CAG candidate with the then board president Anurag Thakur in any event, going to outrageous lengths. At that point, the then ICC executive Shashank Manohar told the court that Thakur had looked for a letter from him which said permitting a CAG delegate to sit on the Apex Council would add up to government obstruction; it was against the ICC rules. The court said there was a prevarication body of evidence against Thakur, who is as of now the Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs in the Indian government. Before long, the court sacked Thakur as the BCCI president for neglecting to actualize the Lodha changes.
