Former Goa Cricket Association (GCA) Treasurer Vilas Desai, who is backed by Sanguem MLA Subash Phaldesai, on Wednesday demanded a thorough inquiry into the misappropriation of funds by the GCA managing committee.
Addressing the media, GCA life members and former players, Desai said the government should suspend the GCA committee and appoint an administrator. “An IAS officer needs to be appointed as an administrator and inquire into the scam,” he said. Desai said the fake account scam is just the tip of the iceberg there being many more.
Vilas Desai, who was the treasurer when Vinod Phadke and Chetan Desai served as president and secretary, respectively, said the duo never took financial approval for any purchases etc. “We need to also look into the purchases of floodlights, which are shown as Rs 4.5 cr besides the LED scoreboard and the giant screens, which are other major scams,” he said.
