In the next few days we will have a policy on players from other states: Vaibhav

JAIPUR Rajasthan Cricket Association The president (RCA), Vaibhav Gehlot, could have nailed the last nail in the coffins of Nagaur, Alwar and Sriganganagar. During the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) chaired by him in the RCA On Monday, at the Academy, the decision was made to keep the DCAs associated with Lalit Modi away from any cricket-related activity in the state.

The meeting also saw the appointment of a new ombudsman, a retired judge of Supreme Court judge Shiva Kirti Singh. Along with that, the president and the secretary were authorized to form several committees.

It was only a few days back that the Rajasthan High Court had allowed Nagaur and Sriganganagar to participate in the EGM. The court had given the two DCAs permission to participate in the meeting and nothing beyond that. The ban on RCA was lifted on the condition set by the BCCI that the three bodies must be disaffiliated. So, unless we get any orders from the apex cricket body, these DCAs will remain suspended, RCA joint-secretary Mahendra Nahar said.

The acquisition of BCCI funds is still pending and Vaibhav is ready to meet with the president of the cricket agency. Sourav Ganguly on this issue. The RCA has not received any funds from the BCCI for the past five-six years since the ban came into effect. Our priority will be to get the funds released from the BCCI so that we can distribute it among the district associations. The new BCCI body has just been formed. Let it settle down. I have already informed the BCCI president about the problems faced by the RCA and in the coming days I will officially meet him and push for the release of funds as soon as possible, Gehlot junior said.

The contentious issue of Rajasthan team playing majority of players from outside the state was also touched upon during the EGM. Today in the executive committee meeting held before the EGM, we have discussed about having a proper system in place as far as players' participation from the other states is concerned. In the coming days, we will make a policy in this regard, the RCA president said.

He added: It was unanimously decided that the president and the secretary were authorized during the EGM to establish new panels, be it selection committee or legal committee.

On the other hand, the secretary of the DCA of Sriganganagar, Vinod Saharan, will knock on the doors of the superior court on the issue of disenrollment from the district's cricket corps. I will move to court. When we have submitted the affidavit that the DCA has no connection to Lalit Modi So how could that step be taken against us, Saharan said.
