Kejriwal government wants BCCI to suspend DDCA


A three-member committee, appointed by the Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party government to probe a variety of allegations against DDCA and its officials, recommended that the BCCI suspend the association.

This is part of a series of recommendations made to streamline the affairs of beleaguered DDCA, including appointing a commissioner of inquiry and bringing it under RTI.


While noting that the BCCI cannot have a hands-off approach, the committee, headed by Chetan B. Sanghi, Principal Secretary PWD, Urban Development & Vigilance, has also suggested that the BCCI suspend the DDCA as per the Memorandum and Rules and Regulations of the BCCI per Regulation 32 (ii).


The BCCI has allotted the DDCA the fourth India-South Africa Test, starting 3 December, and set a November 17 deadline for the Delhi association to inform if it was able to host the match. The deadline expires this evening.
