Things to move fast under SC administrators: Lodha
Former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha, who recommended overhaul of the cricket governance in India, today said things would move fast in the BCCI after the newly-appointed administrators take charge after January 19.
"Just wait for 19th (January), I believe as soon as administrators are appointed by the Supreme Court, they take over, things would, I believe, move fast," he told reporters on the sidelines of launch of late jurist Nani Palkhivala's biography written by his friend Dharmendra Bhandari.
On January 2, the Supreme Court directed BCCI and all state associations to implement recommendations of the committee headed by Lodha.
Asked about the timelines for implementation of the recommendations made by the panel, Lodha said those have gone "haywire" and become "irrelevant" now.
To a specific query on what he feels about the delay in implementation of the reforms, he said, "I think better late than never. Of course, there is a delay of six months, but I think that will be repaired."
He added there will be fresh timelines now and the new administrators will implement them.
