Jaipur, Sep 14: The warring groups of Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) will be testing their strengths again as Rajasthan High court today ordered that the two factions will have to mutually agree to a fresh 'No Confidence Motion' that will tabled again.
The court also said that the warring groups will have to come up with the name of the retired judge under whom the 'No Confidence Motion' can be tabled again.
Honorable justice asked both the warring factions to mutually agree for a fresh no confidence motion or fresh elections and put forward a name of person who would chair and supervise the voting which would be held in police supervision.
The court also made it clear that if both the parties fail to do so in the next hearing on September 29, the court would itself appoint a chairman and announce the date to ensure fair and free voting on the motion.
The detailed copy of the decision was expected tomorrow. While both the parties said they were confident of their majority. It might be recalled that the Amin Pathan group had claimed that they have removed Lalit Modi and few other top officials in an EGM but the claim was challenged in court and later on March 9.
Former IPL commissioner Modi was removed from the post of RCA president amid chaos and controversies as a 'No Confidence Motion' against him and three other office bearers, brought in by rival Amin Pathan group was passed in an Extra Ordinary General Body Meeting (EGM) which was chaired by Sports Council Chairman JC Mahanti.
This meeting again was challenged as Modi faction alleged that the vehicles of genuine voters were mobbed, stoned and occupants were beaten and their papers of authorisation were snatched by the attackers was a premeditated attempt to intimidate and prevent the voters from reaching the venue of the voting.
After hearing the matter today the Hon'ble Court of Lady Justice Bela Trivedi opined that only solution to the matter was a fresh voting on the no confidence motion. The court would decide the date of voting and would also appoint a chairman if both parties do not come up with a name after mutual consent.
The court has also constituted committees to ensure the participation of Rajasthan cricketers in the coming domestic season of the BCCI which had suspended RCA because it had elected former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi, who is facing a life suspension, as President.
