GCA adjourns meeting after protests from life members

Posted On June 12, 2016 By In Local, People, Sports, Top Stories

The Goa Cricket Association (GCA) was forced to adjourn an Emergency Special General Body meeting despite having 82 clubs in attendance at its headquarters in Porvorim on Sunday.
GCA president Chetan Desai had called for an emergency meeting to clarify their position before the clubs after an FIR was filed against him, secretary Vinod Phadke and treasurer Akbar Mulla for misappropriation of a BCCI cheque worth Rs 2.87 crore, issued as share of profits from TV rights in 2006. The senior GCA members insist they have done no wrong and it were they who filed the complaint but as they were beginning to place the facts before the clubs – almost all of whom are backing them – there was a huge commotion outside.
Led by Sanguem MLA Subhash Phaldesai, former managing committee members and former Ranji Trophy cricketers, they shouted slogans against the GCA office-bearers and complained that many of the life-members were not allowed entry. Police soon made their presence felt and Desai stepped out to inform the agitators that the meeting has been adjourned.

  1. I wonder how much money has been given to Baban Parulekar, Parsekar and other speakers. Based on the questions I heard some people did raise queries which looked like they were not agreeing with the speakers. Parulekar and Parsekar definitely have some motive behind supporting fraudsters like Chetan, Balu and Akbar. One comment which Vikas Parsekar made “small thing from 8 years ago” sounded very childish to me. I have not heard his name but 3.87 crores is not a small amount unless you are top tier industrialist from Goa. I hope Govt takes measures to stop this biased stupid committee from going ahead with the investigation.

  2. I smell something fishy about the way Vikas Parsekar, Baban Parulekar and other speakers are defending fraudsters Balu, Chetan and Akbar. When Secretary officially announced that meeting is adjourned, what right does clubs have to continue with the meeting. I wonder if some of these clubs have been given part of the loot by the famous trio. Govt should interfere to save cricket from these crooks. Instead of discussing about the money looted by trio, these guys were praising them. I hope Govt takes right action and send everyone involved in the jail including guys who are defending them on the stage.
