New Delhi: Dec 18; Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi on Thursday lashed out at the Delhi and District Cricket Association, stating that the state government does not need permission to probe the alleged financial irregularities in the sports body.
Bedi's statement came soon after the DDCA again strongly refuted AAP's allegations of financial bunglings by Finance Minister and its former chief Arun Jaitley.
"Why do they have this idea that Delhi state government needs permission from DDCA to probe the irregularities? If they are so clean then why did the BCCI needed to stop their annual grant. If anyone kindly bothers to explain it to me," Bedi told media on Thursday.
"Ok, they all are clean and are not involved in financial irregularities. Then why did the Delhi high Court need to appoint an independent observer in Justice (Retd) Mukul Mudgal to conduct a Test match. They are painting a hunky dory picture and let them paint one! Who's stopping them," a sarcastic Bedi added.
Earlier, for the second successive day, the entire top brass of the DDCA addressed a press conference where they made a point by point rebuttal of the alleged charges made by the AAP against Jaitley.
