BCCI General Manager RP Shah resigns

first_imgRP Shah, one of the three General Managers of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has resigned from his post citing his age as the “reason”.Shah was serving as the General Manager (Commercial). While some in the BCCI circles perceive that Shah’s decision has come in the wake of the 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.”Yes, I have resigned from my post. The reason is that I am 61-year-old. I had taken the decision back in October. I live in Pune and was finding it really hectic to regularly travel to Mumbai. There was no pressure or query from the COA. I shared a good rapport with CEO Rahul Johri and the CFO (Santosh Ragnekar). Rahul wanted me to continue but I requested him to relieve me,” Shah said.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 the director of the construction company BG Shirke Constructions, whose top boss was former BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke. BG Shirke Constructions shared a professional relationship with Mumbai Cricket Association.Meanwhile, the two remaining General Managers of the BCCI were MV Sridhar, Cricket Operations and Game Development wing in-charge Ratnakar Shetty.last_img
