The story thus far

A PTI round up on the situation in Kolkatta, where the BCCI AGM stands adjourned.
Meanwhile, S.C. Sen, who was appointed observer by the Calcutta High Court on Wednesday, left the venue of the meeting.

What fun -- while they wait for the other two observers to get there, the first one goes walkabout.

  • Prem:

    This article "http://www.telegraphindia.com/1050923/asp/frontpage/story_5274557.asp"
    seems to indicate that Justice Sen stayed pretty late and had gone home only after waiting for a long time. The damn thing wound up only at 10:30pm. Justice Singh and Justice Punchi flew in to Kolkata on Thursday only. Apparently Punchi had to take two flights to reach Kolkata. Who knows what time they reached the hotel?

    I don't blame Sen for going home at 10pm to get away from the madness.

    The arrival of the other two judges on Thursday itself caught Dalmiya off gaurd, and if they had reached the Hotel before Sen left, Dalmiya would surely have lost the election. But, now he has time to file a motion in court on Friday morning and adjourn the AGM till he gets some more votes.

    What a guy! Dalmiya is India's Karl Rove.

  • ah, this is the BCCI that we know and love:

    "Mahendra was critical of former president Raj Singh Dungarpur for “patting” Modi while he attacked him using unparliamentary language, but Raj Singh countered by asking: “Is it a crime to pat somebody? In any case, I was asking Lalit to cool down.”

    A good many need to cool down."

    great article, nish. BTW, Lalit Modi replaced Kishore Rungta as head of the Rajastan club. He apparently worked out a scheme to have a first-class league in India with foreign players, but the BCCI has nixed it so far.
