Ombudsman directs RCA convene AGM 
Entire issue relating to impasse in RCA and its reentry in BCCI would depend on the outcome of the AGM
Ombudsman justice Gyanshudha Mishra on Tuesday directed the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) to convene the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to resolve the issue of suspension of the Nagaur District Cricket Association and RCA secretary RS Nandu. Although no date has been announced for convening the AGM, a 21-day prior notice is required for the meeting.

The entire issue relating to impasse in the RCA and its reentry in the BCCI would depend on the outcome of the AGM. The meeting, which was held at the SMS Stadium premises reportedly witnessed fierce exchanges between people loyal to RCA President CP Joshi and presently suspended Lalit Modi. Amin Pathan who was once a staunch loyalist of Modi had heated arguments with Mehmood Abdi, former deputy president of RCA. Sources informed that the issue being discussed was removal of Modi from the Nagaur District Cricket Association which was raised by Pathan.
He demanded that Modi be removed so that the ban on RCA can be lifted by the BCCI. However, Abdi argued that the RCA set up has no legal mandate to sack or suspend any individual or association. He said such action can only be taken by the AGM and demanded the BCCI letter should be put before the AGM. The fracas forced Ombudsman Gyansudha Mishra to caution both the sides. She said instead of arguing with one and another, the members to address their problems to her.
Later speaking to media, Joshi said that he wanted that the BCCI ban should be lifted as his main priority was that cricket should return to state. In the meeting almost all the office-bearers of the districts were present. The lawyers from both sides were also present who explained the points relating to legal issues during meeting. Notably, to resolve the internal disputes of RCA, Ombudsman had called the meeting on Tuesday.
