New Delhi: A plea was on Friday moved in the Delhi high court seeking a stay on the elections scheduled to be held on June 30 for selecting the managing committee of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

The petition came up for hearing before Justice A.K. Chawla, who said that since the issue of elections in the cricketing body was earlier dealt with by a division bench, a similar bench should hear the instant matters. It listed the matter for hearing before a larger bench on June 25.

 

The petition by Ravi Mehra has sought that the DDCA elections should not be held till the finalisation of the constitution of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Mr Mehra claimed that after finalisation of the BCCI constitution, changes may be required in the DDCA’s amended Articles of Association (AoA) which were proposed by court-appointed administrator — former Supreme Court judge Vikramajit Sen — and approved by the high court on March 23.

Besides this plea, two separate petitions were moved by persons whose candidature for the post of Treasurer in the cricketing body was rejected in accordance with the amended AoAs which provide for a cooling off period after demitting a post in DDCA.

 

The two petitions were moved by Ajay Sharma and Dinesh Saini seeking that they be permitted to contest the DDCA polls.

Advocate Pradeep Chhindra, appearing for the administrator, contended that the two petitions were not maintainable.

In the elections to be held on June 30 to select the cricketing body’s executive committee, former India Test player and Delhi legend Madan Lal Sharma, noted journalist Rajat Sharma and senior advocate Vikas Singh are vying for the post of president.
