Jaipur: In yet another episode of the protracted fight between Lalit Modi and the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI), the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) election results will be declared in Jaipur on Tuesday.
Last week, after postponing on many occasions due to legal issues, the Supreme Court has directed election officers to open the sealed envelope, which contains the votes of the state association, on May 6.
The RCA elections were held on December 19 last year under the supervision of two retired Supreme Court judges, NM Kasliwal and SP Pathak. The votes, casted by 33 district units, were submitted to the apex court in a sealed envelope.
Modi, riding on the Rajasthan Sports Act 2005, contested the elections and it is believed that he has won it comfortably. The former Commissioner of the Indian Premier League is seeking to return as RCA president, but legalities and the BCCI regulations are likely to stand in the way.
