Former Indian Captain Bush Hammer Bedi We asked the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) to remove his name from the spectators’ seats at Ferrozshire Kotora Stadium, home of domestic cricket. We have also abandoned our membership in the association. In an email to DDCA, Bedi responded to the news that the association had decided to build a statue of Arun Jateley, the former president of the association, in a stadium renamed after him after his death last year. Stated. ..
Named after the venue stand in 2017, Bedi cites what he called the “unpleasant past” and the nepotism of Jatley’s 14-year rule as President of DDCA as the reason for his decision. did.
This is the full text of an email from Bedi to Rohan Jaitley, son of Arun Jaitley and new president of DDCA, on December 22nd.
I am writing this letter with a heavy heart and embarrassment.
I’m old enough to know not to speak ill of the dead. And I hope you too are old enough to know my personal relationship with late Arun Jetley. Let’s say we weren’t really cricketing our peers when he was the president of DDCA. My appointments about the choices of people he has hand-selected to carry out DDCA’s day-to-day operations are well known. I remember he leaving a meeting in his dwelling where he couldn’t throw away the violent elements with terribly dirty words. I think I was too smart. The school is too old. Proud of Indian cricketers, they were not hired by the corrupt Durbar of Psycho fans who gathered in Kotora during the stewardship.
It’s endless to point out that it’s far from the fact of flattery about DDCA’s unpleasant past, but believe me that it has context. I wasn’t raised to continue the fight for the next generation. But I was also taught that if I firmly believe in taking a position, I must stick to it. But sadly, this is how it evolved. Remember, these are nepotist illnesses-you are blamed for the decisions you weren’t attending, and you can’t even make excuses for your absence.
As I’m observing even in your leadership now, DDCA’s court culture continues to be fawn obedience. After Feroze Shah Kotla hastily named after Late Arun Jaitley, and most unfairly named, my reaction may somehow dominate to keep Kotla sacred. How wrong I was. Now I will collect the statues of late Arun Jateley and install them in Kotora. Given the statue of Arun Jetley coming to Kotora, I’m totally crazy about it.
I am proud of being a very tolerant and patient person. But everything I’m afraid of is exhausted. DDCA really tested me and forced me to take this drastic action.
So, President, please remove my name from the stand named after me immediately. Also, I waive my DDCA membership here. I made this decision after thorough deliberation. I don’t tend to ignore the honor given to me. Judge Sen and M / s Committee Dr. ND Puri .. Dr. Ravicha Turvedi .. Vijay Roca Parry .. & Neil Batia .. All Social and Professional Prominent People .. Mohinder Amanas and Me Thank you for spreading the warm gestures .. It won’t fade. But as we all know in honor, there is responsibility. They gave me full respect and honesty when I played the game. And now, for 40 years after retirement, I’m giving them honor just to guarantee their value.
A mere Google search helped me find out that Arun Jaitley’s late tenure at DDCA was full of corruption. As an attorney, you should also know that a large-scale misappropriation case of funds is still pending in court.
The late Arun Jatley is said to have been a capable politician. Therefore, it is Congress, not a cricket stadium that needs to remember him for posterity. He may have been a fan of cricket, but his dissatisfaction with managing cricket was suspicious and he wanted a lot. This is not a rhetorical evaluation, but a de facto evaluation of his time at DDCA. In my words, failure does not have to be celebrated with a forehead or bust. They need to be forgotten.
When traveling to cricket stadiums around the world, the president will find out how aesthetically challenged Kotora is and the lack of grandeur of the test center. Sports managers need to be educated that they do not have to be self-serving. The people around you now never let you know that it’s Rose’s WG Grace .. Sir Jack Hobbs of Oval .. Sir Don Bradman of SCG … Sir Garfield Sobers of Barbados and MCG The modern vintage Shane Warne .. Cricket The person who decorates the stadium with the Spirit of Cricket is by no means out of place. As children step into these stadiums, these magnificent statues / busts reinforce and enliven the inspiring stories of these past heroes told by the elders. The sports arena requires a sports role model. The caretaker’s location is in their glass hut.
DDCA doesn’t understand this universal cricket culture, so I need to get out of it. I’m so wrong in my priorities that admins can’t attend stadiums that take precedence over cricketers. Please drop my name from the stand immediately. You don’t have to worry about me or my heritage. Almighty God has been very kind to me to keep me alive in my cricket beliefs. I don’t want my personality to be compromised by my silence or its connection to this unsportsmanlike act.
Thankfully … Bishan Bedi.
