RCA removed former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi as its President
RCA removed former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi as its President after a no—confidence resolution against Lalit Modi was passed in Jaipur.
Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) on 11 October 2014 removed former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi as its President.
He was removed after a no—confidence motion against him was passed in Jaipur in which 23 of the 33 districts voted against Lalit Modi. Three of Modi's supporters have also been removed.
RCA, in Modi’s place, elected Vice President Amin Pathan as the acting President.
Earlier, Modi was banned for life by the BCCI after its disciplinary committee found him guilty for misappropriation of funds during the second and third editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL). But he was elected as the President of TCA in May 2014 with an overwhelming majority.
The election of Modi as president of RCA led to imposition of ban on RCA by Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) leading to an impasse on the future of state’s cricketers on their participation in the BCCI affiliated tournaments.
RCA action is being seen as an apparent bid to end its standoff with the BCCI.
