BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel sacked by Baroda CA, alleges vendetta politics

New Delhi: The BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel, wasremoved from the secretary's post by his own state association Baroda CA on Wednesday after a city civil court in Vadodara rejected his plea to be reinstated in BCA's managing committee.

While BCCI secretary Patel alleged it as a "vendetta politics" from the other joint secretary Anshuman Gaekwad's faction, the BCA sent a press release late evening to inform about their decision to remove Patel.

The decision effectively means that Patel can't represent BCA at the BCCI's AGM right now as per state association's rules.

"The Managing Committee (MC) of Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) had removed Shri Sanjay Patel (MC member and Secretary of BCA) on the basis of Memorandum of Association and Rules and Regulations of BCA for qualifying a MC member status," the press release stated.

"Today (24.9.14) Honorable Chief judicial magistrate, Vadodara (in charge) Shri Sanjaybhai Thakkar has accepted the application of BCA and Plaint of both the suits of Shri Sanjay patel to reinstate him as MC member as well as secretary of BCA was rejected.

"On the basis of the above Judgment of the Court, the decision taken by The Managing Committee of Baroda Cricket Association holds good and Mr. Sanjay Patel (current Hon Secretary of BCCI) is no more a Secretary as well as he is no more a Managing Committee member of Baroda Cricket Association," the release stated.

"If Anshuman Gaekwad is saying that my appointment in BCA's managing committee is illegal, then I would like to ask as to what is the legality of his appointment in the same committee. Anshuman and his group are doing vendetta politics but they won't be successful," a fuming Patel, who is also BCA joint secretary, told PTI on Wednesday.

He said he plans to appeal to Gujarat High Court challenging BCA decision after city civil court in Vadodara dismissed his plea.

"I will be appealing in Gujarat High Court. The situation is such that there can't be any out of court settlement with Angshuman and his group," said BCCI secretary.
