New Delhi: Senior journalist Rajat Sharma on Saturday stepped down from the post of President of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) on Saturday, mentioning the “various pulls and pressures” within the organisation.
“The cricket administration here is full of pulls and pressures all the time. I feel that vested interests are always actively working against the interest of cricket,” Sharma said in a statement.
“It seems that it may not be possible to carry on in DDCA with my principles of integrity, honesty and transparency, which I am not willing to compromise at any cost,” he added.
Sharma’s nearly 20-month tenure was a tumultuous one with his public differences with general secretary Vinod Tihara, who enjoys a fair amount of support base in the organisation.
Rajat Sharma had joined the organisation after immense support from former finance minister late Arun Jaitley.
