BCCI statute can't provide transparency, accountability: SC

New Delhi, May 3: The Supreme Court said on Tuesday the Indian cricket board's constitution is unworthy of providing transparency, objectivity and accountability, and added the values can only be attained by making wholesale changes in it. "The inherent constitution of BCCI is such that it is highly incapable of achieving the values of transparency, objectivity and accountability that without changing its structure it can't be done so," a bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice F.M. I. Kalifulla said. The remarks came after senior advocate Gopal Subramanium, who was appointed as amicus curiae by the court for assistance on the issue, said the BCCI constitution could be deemed illegal if it doesn't allow those values to be achieved since the governing body is discharging a public function. "You discharge public function but you want to enjoy private status. If you have public perso, then you have to shed private perso. This cannot be done. It selects tiol team for the country, it cannot be a private society. It is a public entity," Subramanium said. IANS
