Congress leader Rajiv Shukla, who has been the vice-president for six years and IPL president for many years, will soon become the vice-president of the BCCI. Former Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) secretary Rajiv Shukla on Thursday filed his nomination at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai. No one has filed nominations for the post except Shukla, so it has been decided that he will be the vice-president. The BCCI has its annual general meeting in Ahmedabad on the 24th, which will officially announce the selection of Rajiv Shukla as vice-president.
The BCCI vice-president’s chair was empty after the resignation of Uttarakhand cricket team secretary Mahim Verma. Apart from Rajiv Shukla, Brijesh Petal and Mujumdar have filed nominations to become members of the IPL Governing Council. Elections will not be held here as only two candidates have filed nominations for the two posts. These two are currently members of the IPL Governing Council, so it has been decided that Brijesh Patel will continue as the Chairman of the IPL Governing Council.
Last year, Sourav Ganguly became the BCCI president while Jai Shah became the secretary, Jayesh George the joint secretary, Mahim Verma the vice-president and Arun Singh Dhumal the treasurer. Mahim resigned earlier this year, leaving the post. According to the decision of the Supreme Court, a member cannot hold two posts. Mahim Verma had resigned as BCCI vice-president after accepting the post of secretary of the Uttarakhand cricket team.
