appointed a three-member committee andeven they were stunned at the brazenness and loot that they saw in DDCA Do you consider Kirti Azad’s suspension by the BJP to be a setback Are you disappointed you have not got more support We always knew that we would have to make personal sacrifices if we tried to touch suchpowerful vested interests But we have got more support than we ever thought we would Look at the young cricketers The harrowing tales that they have come out with are simply heartwrenching Corruption in DDCA spheres is horrendous Thepress media and people have all rallied behind us Kirti Azad’s suspension is only an indication aboutthe rot all around I doff my hat to him for the courage that he has shown in standing with cricket and these young cricketers even if it has cost him dearly You do not get men of hischaracter every day We need to win as much for the cause that he has espoused as forhim personally He is battling not just his party in the garb of discipline but he is also facingseveral defamation cases filed by DDCA and third parties instigated by DDCA officials In fact our secretary Sameer Bahadur has also been facing several cases in courts filed by thirdparties and litigation costs have been paid by DDCA Proxy litigation is the speciality ofDDCA and they use proxies to keep complainants enmeshed in courts through expensive andtime-consuming court proceedings What about other members at DDCA How many support you Most of these guys have been made members by the current set of office bearers themselvesover the last 35 years There is no activity worth the name in DDCA yet such peopleremainmembers and hand over their proxies to these 24 directors every year In the last 10 years only 3-4 cricketers have been made members — that too under thecondition that they will give blank proxies at the time of elections to the persons whomade them members Even the bar has been closed down since they were caught servingliquor on 2 October Except for a gym and card room which are used by 15 personseach there is nothing atDDCA DDCA office bearers actually do not want a bettermembership profile since it is easier to manipulate the current profile of members What are your views on the proxy system of voting at the DDCA The proxy system is the root cause of all problems atDDCA As a Section 25 company (nowSection 8) the concept of proxy voting was meant to utilised by members not staying in thecity where a company is registered But sports bodies registered as not-for-profit companieshave been able to exploit this provision A tailor who got into DDCA in 1980 still continueshis hold and has control over 1200 proxies all by himself Every director/patron/vice-patronalso controls a number of proxies because of which they keep coming back into power Littlewonder the BCCI is so hung up on three-term and 70-year formula apart from banning proxiesin the affiliated units and in BCCI Is it possible to reform the system from the inside If a man like Arun Jaitley could not reform the system there is little chance that the systemcan be reformed from the inside We have firmly rebuffed suggestions and overtures to become directors/office bearers/selectors/officials precisely because we know how the system willgobble us if we start serenading with them If we expect to usher in reforms we need tocleanse the system at the roots The proxy system has to go lock stock and barrel Similarly agerestrictions and three-term limits recommended by the Lodha Commission should beimplemented Now that the Delhi High Court has not said your petition asking for a court-ordered investigation in to the DDCA is premature what is your next step The DelhiHigh Court has instructed the CBI to scrutinise the reports as mentionedearlier and to carry out their investigation as per the material already available in plenty CBIsaid they have taken over the case only in October 2015 and that they would want somemore time since there are many persons banks companies etc to question We alsoaccepted the court’s direction We shall go back to the HC if we feel the CBIis acting under pressure and isn’t proceeding as per law From available indications CBI hasswooped down upon DDCA and has already questioned many officials in matters relating tofinancial defalcation and for payments made to fake and dubious companies We areexpecting major revelations soon The HC has dismissed a restoration plea by DDCA and has cleared the decks fordemolishing the unauthorised Old Clubhouse building In fact the Delhi High Courteven showed itsexasperation at the mismanagement of DDCA and we will not besurprised if they in their wisdom appoint an administrator to run the affairs of DDCA soon What assistance have you received from the Delhi government concerning theDDCA The Delhi government deserves kudos since it was their taking up of the case that immediately made this affair anational headline We were fighting for 10 years
