Bihar Cricket Association Chief Writes To Sourav Ganguly About Unlawful Activities in BCA

Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) President Jagannath Singh has written a letter to the president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly to bring into his notice the likely unlawful activities that are happening in the state cricket body.

In his correspondence to Ganguly , the BCA chief has written that all illicit activities taking place in the state association are happening on the instructions of the BCCI General Manager of Cricket Operations Saba Karim. Singh further requested Ganguly to help him reinstate law and order in BCA.

Jagannath in the letter has accused Karim of safeguarding the interests of Ravi Shankar Prasad Singh led group in BCA.

In the letter, the BCA chief  has also brought into light several e-mails written earlier to the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) in which he had asked the Vinod Rai led body to pay attention to BCA’s administration highlighting illegitimate operations of BCA.

The BCA president appealed to Ganguly to take a look at the issue now and take actions in this regard. He emphasized that it is necessary for the BCCI president to act for the sake of the cricketers from Bihar.

Jagannath pointed out that the local players are left perturbed owing to selection of players from other states in the Bihar team. He insisted that such activities have been carried out on the basis of financial dominance.

Jagannath, in his previous communication with the CoA, had highlighted how there had been no change in the working of BCA even after the disqualification of the working group headed by Gopal Bohra and Ravi Shankar Prasad Singh. He had informed the CoA that the disqualified commission was still interfering in BCCI related matters.

It is to be noted that BCA has returned to domestic cricket after a long gap of 18 years. It was suspended in 2000-2001, but the Supreme Court had ordered the BCCI last year to allow Bihar to feature in Ranji Trophy.
