Another wicket down for BCCI, GM RP Shah resigns
New Delhi : One of the three General Managers of BCCI, RP Shah stepped down for his post. Shah, citied age as the main reason to resign.
Shah was the general manager for commercial and was considered to be one of the big decision makers in board’s commercial interest.
While some in the BCCI circles perceive that Shah’s decision have come in the wake of Committee of Administrators (COA) looking into each and every aspect of the board’s functioning, Shah said that it was purely a personal decision taken four months back.
While another General Manager (Communications and Co-ordination) Amrit Mathur had retired in December, 2016, having reached the superannuation age of 60, there were questions raised about how Shah and GM (Game Development) Ratnakar Shetty are continuing as employees beyond the retirement age of 60.
RP Shah’s name had cropped up last year when the then ombudsman of BCCI Justice (Retd) AP Shah had received conflict of interest complaints against him.
The allegations were that he was director of the construction company BG Shirke Constructions, whose top boss was former BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke.
