Jaipur: With men-in-khadi dominating the sport bodies in the country, the active involvement of Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways C P Joshi and his team in the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) comes as no major surprise. A major dissent in being witnessed in the RCA as it’s President CP Joshi and secretary Sanjay Dixit have come at loggerheads.

Two days back, a meeting of District Associations was conducted at the residence of CP Joshi where several crucial decisions were taken. Majority of the decisions were related to the clipping of Dixit’s dominance in the sports body.

All the sub committees of the RCA were dissolved and all the lawyers have been removed from the association. It was also decided that the decision of a payment worth Rs 2 lakh or above will only be taken by the RCA President of executive committee members.

It was also brought to light that several government employees are members of the various district committees of RCA and they have taken heavy amount from the sports body under the cover of travelling allowance and daily allowances. A show cause notice has been served to all such district units of RCA.

The date for the next annual general meeting of RCA would be soon announced. Meanwhile, to dwarf Dixit’s significance in the association, Joshi has appointed Rajasmand as the Officer on Special Duty in RCA.

It needs to be mentioned that, earlier Lalit Modi was the President of RCA. During his tenure, Joshi was not linked with the RCA.

It was only after Modi landed in the thick of controversy over IPL dispute, Joshi became active in the state cricket body.
