JKCA contests report

Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) has denied that it has received Rs 100 crore from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in the year 2010-11.
Talking to The Kashmir Times from Srinagar, vice chairman Shambunath Sharma said that the report of embezzle¬ment of Rs 100 crore is baseless and concocted.“We have not got such a huge amount from the BCCI. BCCI provides money to its state units for the conduct of domestic activities and for cricket pitches. However, the money which the JKCA has got the year 2009-10 has been used for the development of Sher-i-Kash¬mir of the cricket Stadium in Srinagar and the GGM Science College Hostel Ground in Jammu. We have completely renovated the Srinagar Stadium and constructed pavilion cum change room at GGM Science College Hostel Ground in Jammu,” he said.
He claimed it is for the first time in the history of the state that JKCA has con¬ducted the domestic level cricket activities across the Jammu and Kashmir to select the best ever talented cricketers for the Jammu and Kashmir for the forthcoming Ranji Trophy and others competitions. Not this, the cricketers participated in the said competition have got match money and TA/DA on the spot, he added.
When asked why the people were protest¬ing outside the venue, he said according to JKCA rules, president of each affiliated clubs recommend the nomination of two members to JKCA well before the election. Accord¬ingly, the president of JKCA Dr Farooq Abdullah has approved the voter list on March 1, 2011 recommended by the presidents of respective clubs and no one has raised the objection within due time. Only those were allowed to enter the venue whose name were in the voter list approved by the JKCA chief.
