Cuttack,27/09/19:Former Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) secretary Ashirbad Behera’s son Sanjay Behera has been elected as the new secretary of the State’s Cricket Association.
Behera secured victory against opponent Naba Pattnaik by getting as many as 45 votes out of 73 OCA members.
While Mehtab Khan has been elected as Joint Secretary by securing 40 votes, Vikash Pradhan elected as the Treasurer of OCA.
Notably, the voting for a total of six posts of OCA including President, Vice-president, Secretary, Joint-secretary, Treasurer and Councilor for the Apex Council was held today morning.
The formal announcement for the post of President and Vice President was awaited, till the last report came in.
Sanjay Behera, son of former OCA secretary Ashirbad Behera, few days back, Ashirbad Behera was arrested ahead of the crucial OCA elections in connection with his alleged links in Artha Tatwa (AT) chit fund scam.
CBI sources said Ashirbad Behera had played a crucial role in promoting the AT Group by roping them as sponsors for Ranji Trophy and Odisha Premier League matches during 2011 and 2012.
New Delhi,10/09/19:It refers to media-reports that BCCI may increase annual package for coach of Indian cricket-team by 20-percent to make it rupees ten crores per annum. Cricketers are also paid hefty packages of rupees seven, five, three and one crores respectively in four categories A-plus, A, B and C respectively apart from hefty match-fees, huge awards money and life-time pensions.
It is absolutely unfair to create such a class-distinction in society where cricketers earning otherwise also through their costly appearance in advertisements are paid so heavy from public-fund of richest cricket-body of the world BCCI funded through public-craze where cricket has become religion for people. If earning of BCCI is criterion for payment to cricketers, then priests of famous temples can also demand such hefty payments based on income of temples.
Maruti chairperson has given a practical suggestion that top managements should avoid giving obscene salaries to persons on top. Instead there should be a formula whereby top-most person in an organization be given maximum 15-20 times the salary of lowest paid staff. Same formula must be applicable for BCCI.
Supreme Court appointed monitoring committee for BCCI should ensure that BCCI funds may be utilized for public-welfare schemes in the manner income from famous Hindu temples like Tirupati are spent, rather than creating a ultra super-rich category of persons in a country with so much poverty and unemployment. It is also duty of Union Sports Ministry to interrupt in distribution of BCCI funds like freebies to ultra-rich cricketers.
