president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) announced on Saturday that the body will be unable to hold its AGM which was due later this month The decision was made due to lack of clarity on Lodha commitee recommendations “Not sure what will happen next We will wait for the Supreme Court hearing (on July 14)” the former India captain told PTI reporters after the meeting CAB’s legal counsel Ushanath Banerjee was present in the meeting and said the association will not be able to hold Annual General Meeting as their are already many issues pending before the Supreme Court “Holding of AGM will be wrongful and illegal unless the amendments as directed by the SC are effected which are in doubt as a number of issues are awaited for a final call in the apex court” Ganguly said The BCCI and its members have been very casual regarding the implementation of the structural reforms which were recommended by Justice RM Lodha and approved by the Supreme Court almost a year ago Lodha a former Chief Justice of India was irritated after watching BCCI’s resistance and critical of Committee of Administrators (COA)as they were not being proactive enough blaming the order by saying that there was no ambiguity But the CAB legal counsel Banerjee said: “A number of issues have been placed before the Supreme Court not only by the CAB but all over India including BCCI The Supreme Court is saying they will hear So till a full clarity is reached it’s difficult to implement” According to Lodha reforms Ganguly will have to leave for a compulsory ‘cooling off’ of three years as he has

Tuesday cancelled nearly 300 tenders of irrigation projects worth Rs 6000 crore due to pending investigation by the Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in the multi-crore irrigation scam It has been alleged that Ajit Pawar who was Water Resources Minister between 1999 and 2009 had approved projects worth Rs 20000 crore in 2009 by tweaking rules and without clearance of Governing Council of Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation (VIDC) Former Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar PTI Reacting to this move by the Maharashtra government NCP leader Nawab Malik questioned the timing of this move and told Times Now that the government was only interested in targeting Pawar In response Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande said "We are concerned about the people of Maharashtra not the people of NCP and Congress" Malik also said that the allegations against Pawar were false "Where is the outcome of the enquiry (against Ajit Pawar)" he said The entire scam was brought to light back in 2012 when Vijay Pandhare the then chief engineer in the water resources department wrote letters to the Maharashtra chief minister and governor pointing out the irregularities and cost variation in irrigation projects Moreover despite huge expenditure it appeared that there was no significant rise in irrigated land in the state The percentage of irrigation potential had increased by just 01 percent in past ten years despite an expenditure of Rs 70000 crores on such projects The furor had led to the resignation of Ajit Pawar Later on in 2012 the then Maharashtra government led by Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan had tabled a white paper on the issue in the Maharashtra Assembly giving a clean chit to Pawar After the clean chit Pawar was brought back in the Maharashtra cabinet Both the NCP and Congress had to face a lot of flak for both the scam and the move to reinstate Pawar as Deputy CM After Devendra Fadnavis assumed power in Maharashtra in 2014 he had ordered ACB to conduct an enquiry into the alleged scam On 8 August this year the ACB had filed a chargesheet against 10 people in connection with the Balganga irrigation scam before a district court in Thane The ACB slapped various sections of IPC for cheating and fraud besides the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 against the accused Even though the chargesheet had not named Pawar it had
