Jammu, Mar 18: Jammu Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) President, Dr Farooq Abdullah has forgotten another deadline of laying the foundation stone for dream project of a proposed international cricket stadium at Bajalta in the outskirts of the city here.
It was not for the first time that Union Minister and head of the Association made an unfulfilled promise to the cricket lovers of Jammu that work on the stadium would start soon.  The last time, Dr Farooq made a promise for foundation stone on March 18, after inaugurating the talent hunt programme of the BCCI at GGM Science College Hostel ground, here.
The promise was reiterated by chairman of JKCA, Mohammad Aslam Goni during an interaction with the media at Jammu wing office of the Association recently.
Meanwhile, in a handout issued by the JKCA Jammu wing in a meeting held here today termed the ongoing unrest in the Association as reason for another delay in the laying of foundation stone for the cricket stadium.
Jammu Wing terms funds shortfall in JKCA unfortunate
Jammu, Mar 18: The working committee members, office bearers, prominent cricketers and selectors of the Jammu Wing of the JK Cricket Association (JKCA) have termed the shortfall of funds in the Association as most unfortunate.
In a statement, they said, “A meeting was held at JKCA office Jammu, conveyed under the chairmanship of Joint Secretary, Jammu wing Hardev Singh Jamwal where in one voice the recent incident of financial shortfall at JKCA office Srinagar was condemned and termed as most unfortunate.”
The members unanimously reposed full and unflinching faith in the leadership of its President Dr. Farooq Abdullah. They unanimously endorsed the Association’s decisions for ordering preliminary enquiry in financial shortfall, and the subsequent registration of FIR by the Chairman, JKCA Mohammad Aslam Goni against two of its erring members into the incident. “The members in a resolution passed reposed full confidence in the police investigations underway at Srinagar and were of the firm opinion that the guilty should be brought to book,” the statement said.
The members hoped that the dark shadow of the incident would not deter the JKCA office bearers from rescheduling the foundation stone laying ceremony of the Jammu International Cricket Stadium which was earlier scheduled to be held on March 18.
