BCCI Funds swallowed, Stadium eludes J&K

From Jammu Tribune- dated- 16 April 2012

"Instead of utilising BCCI funds for the promotion of cricket in the state, Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Officials (JKCA) are spending it for their own personal use" - A CRICKETER 

Even the JKCA is struggling to wriggle out of the recent multi-crore scam that has left the cricketing fraternity shocked, the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) stadium, after successfully hosting IPL matches, is now all set to host its first one-day international match during Team India's home series against England.

The postponement of the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the proposed INTERNATIONAL CRICKET STADIUM at Bajalta on March 18 came as a setback for cricketers of Jammu & Kashmir who were waiting for a long time for the construction of the dream project. 

A cricketer said - "Ever since we started playing cricket, we were told by JKCA officials that an exclusive cricket stadium of international repute would soon be constructed, but all these claims fell flat. We are now on the verge of taking retirement from the game and even the foundation stone has not been laid till date at the proposed site."

Another cricketer said - "HPCA has made rapid strides in a short span of time in International Cricket and was promoting its cricketers at higher levels."


  1. I was just wondering - dishonesty index of J&K would be at par with other states of more?!

    1. Sir, its much more and its among the top 5 most corrupt states in India. Looting money, blame militancy for everything.

    2. Congress contributes the most corrupt lot in Omar Govt- Peerzada (Education Minister), Sham Lal (Health) and Taj -moi-uddin. Courses like B.ed and ETT are a loot in broad daylight and education field has become more malign than any other department under Peerzada.
