Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resigned as the president of Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA), one of the major cricket governing bodies in Gujarat. The Ahmedabad-based cricketing body has called for a special general body meeting in about two weeks time to elect a new president.
“Modji had submitted his resignation on Thursday. Now we will meet on June 13 to elect a new president,” said Rajesh Patel, secretary of GCA, a 32-member body that is affiliated to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Modi’s trusted aide, Amit Shah, currently holds the post of vice-president in this cricketing body. According to sources in the GCA, Shah is likely to be elected as the new chief of the cash-rich body.

Modi was first elected unopposed as the head of GCA in September 2009, when a 16-year Congress dominance at the body ended. In fact, it was Shah who had help topple the then president Narhari Amin (now a BJP member), who had remained at the helm of GCA since 1993.
