Johri not allowed to attend BCCI SGM
Johri was told by Choudhary that he along with all other BCCI employees should leave the meeting premises.
Adhering strictly to the Supreme Court diktat of letting in only office-bearers, the BCCI today (July 26) did not allow its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rahul Johri to attend the Special General Meeting (SGM) here.
Along with Johri, the representatives Odisha and Punjab were debarred from the meeting as the representatives were not office-bearers.
"Johri is not an office bearer but a salaried employee of BCCI. While he attended all previous SGMs, we can't take a chance this time as we have to honour SC order in letter and spirit. All employees were told by acting secretary that they have to leave the room," a state unit representative, who did not wish to be named, said.
It was learnt that Choudhary personally checked all the letters of authorisation brought by representatives so that there is no violation of apex court's order.
