New Delhi, July 21
BCCI ethics officer DK Jain on Tuesday discovered Board worker Mayank Parikh responsible of battle of curiosity and requested him to decide on between his function within the BCCI and his affiliation with six cricket golf equipment in Mumbai.
The erstwhile Committee of Administrators and former Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjeev Gupta had filed a battle of curiosity grievance towards Parikh final 12 months for proudly owning six golf equipment/academies in Mumbai.
“I am convinced that on the facts at hand, a case of conflict of interest as enshrined in the Rules is made out,” said Jain within the order, which is in PTI’s possession.
“Accordingly, will probably be open to the BCCI to grant a chance to Mr. Mayank Parikh to both himself resign from the submit of the Manager, BCCI or to wind up all of the Clubs in query forthwith or by taking another steps, which shall be certain that the scenario of battle of curiosity is resolved to the satisfaction of the BCCI.
“On the failure of Mr. Mayank Parikh to take adequate steps in that regard, the BCCI may take appropriate action to ensure that this conflict of interest ceases to exist at the earliest,” he wrote.
As per the BCCI structure, no particular person can maintain a couple of submit on the similar time.
“Undoubtedly, Mr. Parikh continues to be the alter ego of the six Clubs, regardless of his alleged snapping of hyperlinks with the six Clubs, on paper.
Jain, in his order, stated that six certificates, during which the MCA vouched for the golf equipment to be its members and odd Maidan Clubs which would not have their very own floor or an academy, “reflects the clout Parikh enjoys with the MCA”.
“In my opinion the percentage of the voting right of the six Clubs in the MCA is immaterial, as the fact remains that the six clubs, through their functionaries, who mostly happen to be his family members (at least five out of seven) do have the right (in any case the potential) to influence the decision-making process of the MCA,” Jain added.
