HPCA has done nothing wrong: Anurag Thakur
Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) president Anurag Thakur on Monday asserted that the association has done nothing wrong, but the state government was bent on tarnishing its image by making motivated and baseless statements.
Justifying the decision to hold the HPCA`s meeting, Thakur who is also an MP said, Himachal?High Court in its judgement on a petition filed by him, directed the Registrar of Societies to fix its jurisdiction and hence HPCA was not bound to inform the authorities.
Defending the two IAS officers, Deepak Sanan and R S Gupta who are in the dock and charge-sheeted in the HPCA case, Thakur said it was sad that the Congress government was acting against officials in its campaign of vilification against the sports body.
"Government should not?waste its energy for harassing officials by transfers and?other means," he added.
He informed that HPCA today passed a resolution in its Annual General Meeting (AGM) condemning state government`s actions against the state cricket body.
"We had informed the Registrar of societies ten months back and the matter is in?the court now," Thakur said blaming the government for indulging in political vendetta and targeting HPCA unnecessarily.
