Kolkata: On a day when the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) is scheduled to meet and discuss the next course of action on the reforms proposed by him, Justice R.M. Lodha said it was "unfortunate" that even after almost one year since the verdict, the recommendations could not be implemented.

"I am sad and it's unfortunate. CoA was appointed about six months back. There was sufficient time to implement the order. It's not a happy moment and it's quite unpleasant," Lodha said on Saturday.

On January 30 this year, the Supreme Court had appointed a four-member committee headed by former comptroller and auditor general Vinod Rai to administer the day to day affairs of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), as an interim measure to oversee the implementation of the Lodha recommendations.

The apex court, in the same month, had also removed president Anurag Thakur and BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke from their posts for obstructing the implementation of the reforms.

"It is unfortunate because on July 18, 2016 Supreme Court passed the order after hearing BCCI at length. Now after almost one year, we are nowhere near the implementation of the judgment of the Supreme Court," Lodha said.
