statement recorded alleging that the investigating agency was trying to “tutor” him After arresting Sharma in Ahmedabad Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officers brought him to Bhuj in Kutch Wednesday The ACB also summoned Henry James Chacko the RTI activist who first alleged corruption in land allotment by Sharma for recording his statement the same day But Chacko refused to get his statement recorded as the ACB officers wanted “An ACB man sat beside me with a laptop and officers asked me to give my statement But I disagreed over the manner of recording it suspecting the statement was drafted beforehand and the officers just wanted me to sign it” Chacko who works with the NGO All India Anti-Corruption and Crime Prevention Council told The Indian Express Friday It was on the basis of an

Superstar culture Culture and syndrome in isolation are not synonymous or convey remotely the same meaning But both words acquire an almost identical colouring when eminent historian Ramachandra Guha

example is former skipper MS Dhoni who despite having forsook Test cricket nearly 30 months ago continues to be in the A contract and enjoys its privileges Superstar culture he points out has manifested in the kitschy manner the whole Anil Kumble-Virat Kohli saga is rolling out Guha seems to be confounded rather than appalled at how “a group of senior players” can decide or dictate the

is that alienating and replacing the BCCI with people of little experience despite their worthy pedigree is bound to invite more confusion and commotion The attempt at unshackling cricket from its seasoned gnarly administrators has only shackled the game’s administration further Now it can mutate into a cure-turns-cancer scenario Guha’s resignation was but a symptom Guha’s own quote from his
