Vastavam web: The BCCI acting president CK Khanna on Wednesday expressed his disappointment over a majority of the DDCA members voting in favour of the “proxy system”.Khanna, who has been accused by his detractors for being the face of “proxy voting” in the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA), had said earlier that he wanted his supporters to vote in favour of abolition of proxy voting, which was item no 96 on the agenda.
“We had a chance to abolish proxy system. Also this is terribly disappointing that all amendments with regards to company acts proposed by Justice Sen were not accepted by the members,” he said.The acting BCCI president then gave his practical observation as to why DDCA members went against Lodha Committee diktat, knowing well that it won’t lead them anywhere.”I am declaring this openly. I have voted against proxy this time. If there is another round of voting, I will once again vote against proxy system till it is abolished,” said Khanna.
The DDCA, which is now being run by High Court appointed administrator Justice (Retd) Vikramajit Sen, met for an Extra-Ordinary General Meeting (EGM) on September 15 where 103 articles pertaining to good corporate governance was put to vote.
