Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s son Vaibhav Gehlot was elected President of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) on Friday. Vaibhav got 25 votes while his opponent Ramprakash Chaudhary from the rival Rameshwar Dudi group received only six votes. All six posts of the RCA have been won by the incumbent RCA President CP Joshi group.
The other office-bearers elected include Aameen Pathan who is Vice-President, Mahendra Sharma (Secretary), Kishan Nimawat as Treasurer, Mahendra Nahar as Joint Secretary and Dewaram Chaudhary as a member.
The RCA elections were being looked upon with keen interest with Vaibhav joining the fray after being inducted as treasurer from Rajsamand. He was supported by Joshi who also holds the post of Assembly Speaker.
However, former leader of opposition Rameshwar Dudi also filed his nomination for the RCA president’s post which made these elections as Congress vs Congress. IANS
