Ramachandra Guha quits as BCCI administrator
New Delhi: Noted historian Ramachandra Guha on Thursday told the Supreme Court that he has resigned from the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that runs the affairs of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Guha cited personal reasons to resign from the four-member CoA appointed by the Supreme Court to implement the R.M. Lodha Committee’s recommendations on the BCCI.
A vacation bench of Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar and Justice Deepak Gupta were informed of the historian’s decision by Guha’s lawyer Rakesh Sinha, who sought the court’s permission to file an application for its nod.
Guha’s resignation letter was dated May 28.
The vacation bench permitted Sinha to file the copy of Guha’s resignation letter with the court registry.
Guha was a member of the CoA headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General Vinod Rai.
Former cricketer Diana Edulji and IDFC Ltd Managing Director and CEO Vikram Limaye are the other members on the panel.
The CoA was appointed by the apex court on January 30 after the BCCI looked reluctant to implement the Lodha panel recommendations.
The Supreme Court will hear Guha’s plea to relieve him on July 14.
