Jaipur: A Special Court in Udaipur has asked the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to register a case against Union minister and Rajasthan Cricket Association president CP Joshi regarding his election as a treasurer of the Rajsamand District Cricket Association.
The BJP MLA from Nathdwara Kalyan Singh Chauhan has filed a complaint against Joshi and five other persons alleging that the minister for road transport and highways had used unfair tactic to get himself elected as treasurer in the Rajsamand District Cricket Association (RDCA) on November 7, 2009.
It has been claimed that Joshi had acquired the post of treasurer in RDCA through fraudulent means and has produced forge documents. The prevailing Sports Act if the state has the provision that only the office bearers, for eg. the president, secretary or treasurer of the district associations have the right to fight for the state body elections.
The election of the Rajasthan Cricket Association were on the cards at that time and CP Joshi nursing his dreaming had found his way into RCA after being nominated as treasurer in the RDCA.
Even then he was accused of resorting to unfair tactic and subsequently, a criminal complaint was filed against Joshi, who had filed his nomination for the post of president for the RCA election which was scheduled for December 7, 2009.
The controversy has re-surfaced and Chauhan has once again charged Joshi with same allegations. He has accused Joshi of misusing his powers as Union Minister.
