The BCCI on Tuesday decided to convene a Special General Meeting of its affiliated units in Mumbai on August 5 to discuss about the implementation of the Lodha Committee Recommendations as per Supreme Court directives.

The state unit members have been apprised about the development on Tuesday.

“Yes, we have received an e-mail from the BCCI that there will be an SGM on August 5 at the Cricket Centre in Mumbai. The agenda is to discuss the implementation of the Supreme Court directives,” a member of state unit confirmed the development to PTI.

The idea of calling SGM before president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke meeting Lodha Panel on August 9 in New Delhi is to take stock of the current situation and also the viewpoint of the members regarding practical difficulties of implementation, before it is placed before the committee.

“I guess before meeting the Lodha Panel in Delhi on August 9, the senior office-bearers will like to take the viewpoint of the senior state unit officials. One of the main bone of contention is the cumulative tenure part of 9 years for the office-bearers,” the BCCI official said.

It is expected that BCCI’s team of lawyers will also be present during the SGM.
