New Delhi [India], August 9 (ANI): Justice Mukul Mudgal has said that the Supreme Court judgment on the draft constitution of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has diluted the recommendations made by the Lodha committee.
The retired judge, however, added that there would have been a good reason behind the judgement.
"It is a Supreme Court judgement. Parties have been heard. Of course, it dilutes Lodha Committee report but surely there must have been a good reason. We will have to read the judgement for it," Justice Mudgal told ANI.
Reflecting on the cooling-off period order, the former judge said it completely makes sense as the new appointments break the continuity in work.
Earlier in the day, the Apex Court had amended the draft constitution proposed by the BCCI, in which it made changes in the cooling-off period of the Board's officials.
According to the new amendments made, the office bearers would now be allowed to serve two consecutive terms in the office instead of one.
Apart from that, the court discarded the 'one state one vote' policy, according to which the regional affiliates of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) were not eligible for the voting rights.
Approving the draft constitution submitted by the BCCI with some modifications, the court also granted full membership to Mumbai Cricket Association, Vidarbha, and Railways. (ANI)
