The Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association witnessed high drama as tussle for control between two factions one led by former CM Faroo Abdullah, and another by PDP minister Imran Ansari today first led to unseating of Abdullah by a forty two member colloquium which was later stayed by the court.
Abdullah, who has been at the helm of JKCA for last 35 years was removed from the post of the president by forty two members of the association out of the 64 but shortly thereafter the Abdullah faction petitioned the court which stayed the election.
The court said that operation of the notice dated July 9, 2015 is stayed till next date of hearing which has been fixed on July 31.
Abdullah has been the president of JKCA since 1980, and he was elected for another 3 years term last year. He dubbed the move by Ansari led faction as illegal and unconstitutional, adding that he was still left with two years in office.
The Court as such has kept the decision of the working Committee in abeyance, and the new team can not take over till further orders.
