The allegation was made by Azad, a BJP MP from Darbhanga, before a bench of justices Badar Durrez Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva which was hearing a plea of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) seeking a direction to South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) to issue a provisional occupancy certificate (POC) to hold the test at Ferozshah Kotla stadium.
While the match is scheduled to be held from December 3 to December 7, DDCA has sought POC from December 1 to 10.
Azad also alleged that a lot of 'bungling of finances' has taken place at DDCA which was being investigated by the CBI and Registrar of Companies.
He also alleged that of the around Rs 40 crore the association gets for spending on cricketing activities, only about Rs 7 crore was used for the purpose and urged the court not to allow DDCA to hold the game.
DDCA has moved the court for the interim relief as the SDMC yesterday rejected their application for a no-objection certificate or POC to hold the match.
The court, however, questioned how SDMC sanctioned construction of the stadium if it had received no NOC from L&DO. To this, Kanth said he would tomorrow bring the entire file on how the sanction was given. Thereafter, the court listed the matter for hearing tomorrow.
