JKCA elections within month: Dr Farooq
‘COMPLETE PROBE IN SCAM IMMEDIATELY’
Srinagar, Sep 9: Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy and Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association President, Dr Farooq Abdullah has said the fresh elections of Association would be held within a gap of one month.
The JKCA President said this during working committee meeting of the Association held at Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium here on Saturday.
“To strengthen the Association and promote cricket activities in J&K, new elections would be held soon and most probably within month,” JKCA Treasurer, Manzoor Wazir quoting Dr Farooq Abdullah said.
“He directed the probe committee that has been investigating the multi-crore scam to contact higher officials of Police for acquiring necessary details and present their report within a month,” he said.
Before the commencement of the Committee meeting, Dr Farooq had asked the concerned Association officials not to entertain membership of any person whose clubs has more than one nomination. Due to this, JKCA Chairman, Muhammad Aslam Goni, two joint secretaries, Vice-Chairman and others were barred from entering into the meeting hall.
However, former general secretary, Saleem Khan whose name had come up in the scam attended the meeting while another former general secretary, Ahsan Mirza who was also named in scam, chose to stay away.
“Goni and others were barred because their clubs whom they represent in Association are running into dispute. Due to that he was ineligible to attend meeting,” said former general secretary, ML Nehru.
During meeting Dr Farooq took several decisions which include forming of two Committees and 25 per cent hike in salary of JKCA employees.
“Dr Farooq made it clear that the ongoing probe should not affect the cricket activities,” Nehru said.
“He directed formation of Committee to oversee selection process. Committee includes four former general secretaries, Saleem Khan, ML Nehru, Abdur Rouf and Mehboob Iqbal. The other Committee was formed to draft out working manual of Association. In addition to above four members it will also have former general secretary, Chaman Lal as its member,” Nehru said.
The former general secretary said that a decision was also taken to give authority of signing cheques to Treasurer, Romesh Mahajan.
“The working committee gave powers of signing cheques to three members that includes current treasurer, Romesh Mahajan and me (ML Nehru),” he added.
