Related News IN ONE of the sharpest attacks on Indian cricket officialdom since it took charge in January the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has urged the Supreme Court to remove the top three BCCI office-bearers stating that their conduct was “unfit” and that they weren’t in a position to “make good” on their undertakings of implementing the Lodha reforms While recommending the ouster of acting president C K Khanna acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary and acting treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry the CoA has asked for the management administration and governance of Indian cricket to be entrusted exclusively in their hands till the new set of office-bearers is appointed via fresh elections This is the most stinging and significant of the CoA’s recommendations in their fifth status report that was submitted to the Supreme Court Tuesday three days prior to the next hearing The report mentioned that Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke were removed from their posts of the BCCI president and secretary respectively through an order of apex court on January 2 and that “it was only fair” the current office-bearers be treated in the “same manner” “The current office-bearers of the BCCI have demonstrated scant regard for the directions issued by the Committee of Administrators and continue to flout the same with impunity” the report reads It further reports that the actions of the constituent members of the BCCI constituted “wilful disobedience” and demonstrated “overall resistance” to the Supreme Court’s order The CoA has also came down hard on the cricket board members for deliberately subverting the court directives during the BCCI’s July 26 Special General Meeting (SGM) They also lambasted BCCI CEO Rahul Johri’s exclusion along with that of the legal team from the last SGM for which the Committee had show-caused the office-bearers “…the office-bearers instead of reprimanding the constituent members who were suggesting that BCCI officials including the CEO leave the meeting did absolutely nothing They came up with ingenious answers that CEO left of his own accord Such a stand being taken by the office bearers is most unfortunate” it stated The CoA directive mandated Johri’s presence at the meeting The CEO was excluded citing the Supreme Court order that made only the state association/member office-bearers to attend the meeting But the CoA felt that the decision was “pre-planned and orchestrated” The CoA pointed out how during the SGM the high-court appointed Delhi and District Cricket Association Administrator Justice (Retd) Vikramajit Sen took a dig at the BCCI members saying “There are some things the Lodha Committee had suggested and you are doing everything contrary to that” The diversion tactics of the BCCI office-bearers also came for flak with the CoA noting “The totally neutral expression ‘etc’ was treated as an excuse to bring in a series of issues aimed at unravelling the fundamental core of the reforms” Over the last six months the CoA had tried to build consensus among members informing them that it would be considerate towards one or two practical issues like three-member selection committee and one state-one vote But the BCCI SGM on July 26 objected to five points in the Lodha Committee recommendations — “One state-one vote; disqualifications of office-bearers (above 70 years of age and/or completing nine years with cooling-off periods); powers duties and responsibilities of employers office-bearers functionaries committees etc (have to be dynamic and have to be decided by the board); number of selectors and constitution of the apex council No communication The committee also mentioned another instance relating to the same SGM which showed the BCCI office bearers’ “impunity” revealing that they failed to communicate the decisions taken during the meeting to the Committee despite directions to that effect The CoA also flayed the general body for not adopting the new Conflict of Interest guidelines and the New Fund Disbursement Policy The status report also spoke about prima facie “instances of malfeasance and misfeasance” of funds in certain state associations and asked for a committee to be appointed for investigation They also recommended that the Supreme Court appoint an administrator in each state association to usher in reforms For all the latest Sports News download

News Within two weeks of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) “open internet order” a consortium of telecom and cable companies challenged it in court The FCC the US telecom regulator had made the open internet order to protect network neutrality Usually restrained in regulating internet services it cited the overwhelming public interest from regulation On the face of it India seems to be following a similar trajectory On Monday TRAImade the Prohibition of Discriminatory Tariffs for Data Services Regulations 2016 By preventing telecom companies from charging different prices for accessing different parts of the internet the regulation protects net neutrality Now telecom companies cannot shape consumer behaviour by giving free access to certain websites and then charging the website owner The internet has been protected — data must be treated equally and user choice prevails Telecom companies and some large internet firms had argued against this regulation in TRAI’s consultation process After losing this bout it’s reasonable to apprehend that they will challenge the regulations in court Legal challenges to a regulation made by TRAIin consumer interest are regular At this point differences between the TRAIregulation and the FCC’s order can be marked While clear authority exists under law forTRAI to make the regulations the FCC made its rules on a shaky statutory foundation Though the TRAIstatute is close to 15 years old it provides several express powers to make rules in defined categories Two of these categories were mentioned by Trai in the recital of its regulation and the explanatory memorandum that contains a detailed background The first is the power to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of the licence and the second is to notify rates at which telecommunication services can be offered The first power comes into play as the telecom licences state that telecom users should have unrestricted access to the internet The second is at the core of the regulation as it prohibits discriminatory pricing of tariffs Share This Article Related Article Further assurance can be derived from the fact that our courts are usually wary of stepping into the domain of policy formation and defer to expert regulators such as TRAI TRAI’s explanatory memorandum refers to Secretary Ministry of Information and Broadcasting vs Cricket Association of Bengal (1995) to state that airwaves and spectrum are a public resource It further links this to the constitutional guarantee of freedom of speech and expression stating how network neutrality will maintain the plurality of the internet necessary for achieving this right These fundamental precepts of law have been evolved by our courts by interpreting the Constitution It’s only natural to expect the judiciary to apply them It’s easy to blame the telecom industry or make polemical arguments against it To be clear — it’s no one’s case that telecom operators cannot and should not make a profit Further it’s unreasonable to punish them in the mistaken pursuit of anti-corporatism Private industry has been instrumental in building networks and ushering in connectivity The internet boom can be credited partly to it But ultimately it serves an interest much larger than shareholder profit As licensees of spectrum a public resource the ultimate interest should be of the public TRAI has clearly indicated that the public interest is served by its network neutrality regulations It has even taken a lead by completely prohibiting zero-rated services that the FCC permitted on a case-by-case basis As appreciation flows in from abroad for Trai becoming a world leader in network neutrality regulations moderation is important given the certainty of a legal challenge It’s hoped that any court determining a challenge weighs the considerations that have shaped this regulation In doing so it will provide the necessary confidence to a maturing regulator that’s expected to

battery after briefly grabbing a female reporter’s arm at a campaign event but prosecutors have said the situation might have been avoided with two simple words: I’m sorry State Attorney Dave Aronberg said at a news conference there wasn’t enough evidence to justify bringing misdemeanor simple battery charges against Corey Lewandowski for the 8 March dustup with Michelle Fields then a reporter for the conservative Breitbart News website Although Lewandowski’s act wasn’t criminal Aronberg said there may have been an easy way to defuse things File image of Donald Trump Reuters "In a case like this we do encourage an apology Had an apology been given at the beginning of all this we could have avoided the whole criminal justice process" Aronberg said Although police in Jupiter Florida found enough probable cause to charge Lewandowski last month after viewing a video recording of the encounter Aronberg said prosecutors are held to a higher legal standard "We have the burden of proving each case beyond a reasonable doubt" he said In a Thursday night appearance on "Hannity" on Fox News Lewandowski thanked Trump for supporting him and said the decision to drop the charges was a relief "This has really taken over a big piece of my life and I’m glad it’s behind us" he said Lewandowski denied grabbing Fields and Republican front-runner Trump stood by him rejecting calls by his opponents to fire or discipline him Instead he went after Fields accusing her of exaggerating and changing her story Not backing down Fields tweeted a photograph of her bruised forearm and said she had been yanked backward The investigation proved that Lewandowski "pulled Ms Fields back" as she attempted to interview Trump according to a memo by another prosecutor Chief Assistant State Attorney Adrienne Ellis The memo says Lewandowski could have believed Fields was "making unwanted physical contact with Mr Trump" that led him to pull her away "Mr Lewandowski may have had apparent authority to assist in the protection of the candidate specifically to maintain the ‘protective bubble’ around the candidate" Ellis wrote "While the facts support the allegation that Mr Lewandowski did grab Ms Fields’ arm against her will Mr Lewandowski has a reasonable hypothesis of innocence" Ellis added that the video showed Trump moving his arm away from Fields’ initial contact but said that didn’t constitute battery either "It was incidental" she said Over 80% of voters exercised their franchise in the first phase of polling held for rural local body polls in Andhra Pradesh today Barring
