Dungarpur Elected CCI President again


Mumbai, Dec 29: Former Cricket Board chief Raj Singh Dungarpur was on Friday unanimously elected president of the Cricket Club of India, two months after he was suspended from membership for alleged financial irregularaties.

Dungarpur's elevation as president of BCCI's affiliate, a post he had occupied for 13 years before resigning in September this year, came at the meeting of its newly elected Executive Committee here.

Dungarpur was earlier suspended by the previous EC headed by I M Kadri for two years before the decision was revoked at a special general body meeting yesterday to pave the way for his return to the helm of the CCI for a fresh term.

After the lifting of his suspension, Dungarpur was on Thursday co-opted in the EC which met on Friday to take the decision to give him the reins of the club once again.

"It was an emotional and touching moment for me to be welcomed by everyone. It was a grand reception for me and this was only possible because of the good relationship I shared with the members and the staff," Dungaspur said after being elected president of the 75-year-old institution.

Dungarpur said he now stood vindicated, but could not understand the motives of Kadri.

"Kadri has done more wrong to his own image than what he intended to do with mine," said Dungarpur.
