BCCI rejects revised Sports Bill
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) rejected the revised draft of the contentious sports regulation bill of the central government, saying it "tends to encroach upon fundamental rights of sports bodies".
In a statement after the BCCI working committee meeting here, secretary Sanjay Jagdale said that certain provisions in the National Sports Development Bill "seeks to destroy the autonomy of the board and dilute the rights of its members".
"While the BCCI is all for good governance and transparency in sports bodies, certain aspects of the bill seek to destroy the autonomy of the board and dilute the rights of its members," the statement read.
"Therefore, the board is totally opposed to this bill." The BCCI said it will communicate its objections to the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports shortly.
