I Haven’t Lied and There is No Question of Perjury Either, Says BCCI President Anurag Thakur
BCCI President Anurag Thakur has backed himself saying he hasn’t lied under the oath to the Supreme Court and further added there is no question of perjury either.
Anurag Thakur, in October, submitted an affidavit to the apex court saying he did not seek any help from cricket’s governing body against including a member of the Comptroller and Auditor General’s office on top brass of the BCCI. However, the ICC chairman Shashank Manohar has admitted in a letter written to Lodha Panel that the politician asked the ICC to intervene into the matter, two days after the Supreme Court happened to put Thakur under the charge for perjury.
Thakur later said that board is unable to line-up any further meeting with the Lodha Panel to convey their concerns about implementing the recommendations suggested by them.
“The matter is sub judice and I have full faith in the Indian judicial system. We have called meetings time and again to implement justice Lodha committee recommendations. More than 85 per cent recommendations have been implemented.
“The members do not agree to implement three-four recommendations as they are not practical. To convey this, we sought time but the committee is not giving us time for the last two months.”
He further defended his board by saying the amount of success Indian team have had attained on the field in recent times is amazing and the BCCI must get some credit for that.
“Before the recommendations, we have brought many reforms in the BCCI which is the best run organisation in the world today. Our teams have performed well in so many tournaments.
“We are the number one team in Tests, number two in T20s and number three in ODIs. Look at the performance of our junior team where they are in the finals of the Asia Cup. Our women’s team has won the Asia Cup. So where are shortcomings? Pressure is being created unnecessarily on us.”
