Elections for important posts in BCCI are to be held on December 4. For this, cricket associations across the country vote. This time 30 cricket associations from across the country will participate in the elections. In which cricket associations of many states of the country are included. In this election, the UPCA and the Uttarakhand Union have been denied the right to vote. This will also affect the cricket teams to be selected from both the states in the coming days. This can be gauged from the fact that not a single player has been selected from UP and Uttarakhand in the Test match tournament. This is being told for the first time in the history of UPCA, that the UPCA has been deprived of the right to vote in the upcoming BCCI elections.
BCCI strict on UPCA complaints
For the last few years, there has been a tussle over the conduct of elections in the UPCA. A section is adamant on holding elections after 42 years. Whereas the present committee is once again intent on fixing new responsibilities by consensus. Many complaints have also been made to BCCI regarding this. This is being said to be the main reason behind the exclusion of UPCA from voting.
Small states and cricket association got place but UPCA out
Due to not being included in the voting process, it has become clear that no member of UPCA and Uttarakhand will be able to participate in the election process of the board. It is a matter of great regret for the cricketers of the state that the names of the state and Uttarakhand are not there in the list of about 30 small and big state associations across the country. Now the union of the state will also refrain from expressing its views before the board. Due to this, the cricket and cricketers of the state are sure to suffer a lot. There have been several complaints in the past about the functioning of the UPCA in the BCCI.
what is responsible
When UPCA director Riyasat Ali was asked in this context, he first said that it is not so. UPCA will participate in the election of BCCI. But when he was shown the BCCI decision letter, his words changed. He said that the name has not been given due to lack of meeting of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of UPCA. The names will be added after completing the AGM before the BCCI committee elections on December 4. He claimed that the UPCA would also participate.
