Allegations of corruption in DDCA: Decisions under Jaitley’s tenure as chief duly approved by board members, court told

Jaitley had said the Board of Directors of the DDCA “at the relevant time, authorised a committee” to supervise the construction.

The treasurer of the Delhi District and Cricket Association (DDCA) Wednesday told a Delhi court all decisions taken by the body during the tenure of Arun Jaitley as president were “duly approved” by members of Annual General Meeting (AGM) and other board members.

The submissions were made in connection with the criminal defamation suit filed by Union Finance Minister Jaitley against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders for allegedly making defamatory statements and targeting him for corruption in the DDCA.

Three witnesses — lawyer Ved Prakash Sharma, DDCA treasurer Ravinder Manchanda and Registrar of Companies’ (RoC) deputy registrar Rajneesh Kumar Singh — recorded their statements before the court. Manchanda produced all DDCA records pertaining to the renovation of Feroz Shah Kotla stadium before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Khanagwal.

Arguing against allegation of additional expenditure while renovating the stadium, against the sanctioned budget, Jaitley had said the Board of Directors of the DDCA “at the relevant time, authorised a committee” to supervise the construction.
