New Delhi: In a move to consolidate the new leadership of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and remove remnants of the old order, the board on Monday decided to shut down the offices of the former BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke in the capital.
All the officials associated with the two offices have been relieved of their duties with immediate effect.
Further appointments and tenure of other BCCI officials will from now on be overseen by BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.
Commenting on the matter, newly appointed BCCI administrators Diana Edulji said that Nishant Arora's replacement will be finalised by CEO Johri.
"We had just said that President's Office in Delhi should be shut down and all those recruited in Delhi office will need to go. We never named Nishant, but if he is a Delhi Office recruit then he has to go. But if his media manager's contract is independent of it, then Rahul (BCCI CEO Rahul Johri) takes a final call. Nishant's replacement will also be decided by Rahul," Edulji said.
