hills Thursday said it will not support former football star and Trinamool Congress candidate Baichung Bhutia from Darjeeling and instead field its own candidate while seeking support of “one of the two national parties” “We will not support Bhutia We will field our own candidate We will decide our candidate in a couple of days” said Roshan Giri the GJM general secretary The first and a major setback to the ruling party in Bengal came a day after it declared the names of its candidates for 42 seats Sources said the Trinamool Congress’s unit in the hills is also not happy with party chief Mamata Banerjee’s decision to field Bhutia from Darjeeling by rejecting the names of five probable candidates it had forwarded “We had been called to Kolkata Wednesday A seven-member delegation including senior leaders of the hill unit of TMC met party general secretary Mukul Roy He asked for our suggestions and we named five probable candidates Mukul da assured that one of them will be fielded as the TMC candidate from Darjeeling But after half-an-hour they unilaterally announced Bhutia’s name” said Chawng Bhutiya president of Darjeeling Yuva TMC He said the hills unit of the TMC was “taken aback by the sudden decision” but now will have to support Bhutia “as he is our party candidate” The GJM leaders meanwhile said they are shocked as TMC named Bhutia without consulting them “There is no point in supporting Bhutia He is from Sikkim We support him as a footballer but not as a politician We were not consulted even once before the candidate was announced” Giri said Significantly GJM chief Bimal Gurung along with three party MLAs had attended the Brigade Ground rally of Mamata Banerjee to express solidarity and support to the ruling party Sources said it was decided that a GJM candidate will b fielded in Darjeeling and TMC will extend support Pradeep Pradhan chairman of GTA the hill council and a senior GJM leader said “We want a leader who could represent Darjeeling in the parliament Baichung is from Sikkim If TMC wanted him to go to parliament then he could have been nominated and sent to Rajya Sabha the way the Congress sent Sachin Tendulkar Baichung does not belong to this place We wanted a leader not a footballer And Baichung can never be a leader” However Bhutia said that his birthplace shouldn’t be a roadblock in his way to parliament “Being from Sikkim I am also from the hills just like those from Darjeeling So we are all brothers I promise to work for the area with as much sincerity and honesty as I played football” Bhutia who retired from the national team in 2012 said Hoping to get support from the GJM Bhutia said “Their aim is the same as ours —- to bring peace and development in the hills” However according to sources the GJM is now looking for an equation with a national party “There are limited options We either have to go with BJP or with Congress Since BJP is in favour of smaller states the party is likely to seek support from them However Gurung will take the final call” said a senior central committee leader of GJM He said the stakes may be raised “It is not about Darjeeling only There are three Parliamentary seats including Darjeeling Jalpaiguri and Alipurduar where GJM has got a strong support base Now the party might field candidates in all these three seats” he added TMC leader and North Bengal Development minister Gautam Deb said “Our party chief wanted to give representation to people from all fields and Bhutia is one of them We hope the GJM supports himWe are confident of winning the seat” For all the latest Kolkata News download Indian Express App More Related NewsSuper Serena defeats sister Venus Williams to reach Wimbledon quarterfinals Sports FP Staff Jul 07 2015

selectors M S K Prasad know late Wednesday evening that he was ready to step down as India’s captain in ODIs and T20s Prasad told The Indian Express that he and Dhoni who’s with the Jharkhand team as their non-playing mentor for the Ranji Trophy semifinals at Nagpur had chatted earlier in the day too Citing professional confidentiality that exists between a captain and his committee the chief selector did not reveal anything more — apart from lauding Dhoni’s “amazing clarity of thought” WATCH VIDEO |Mahendra Singh Dhoni steps down as India ODI T20I captain READ:MS Dhoni former Indiacaptain However those in the know said that the selection committee had shared with Dhoni their vision about India’s future in the shorter version under Test skipper Virat Kohli There was consensus among the selectors that this was the right time to hand over the reins to Kohli especially with India set to play only 55 ODIs before the next World Cup in 2019 and the Champions Trophy just five months away They still didn’t want to force anything on Dhoni and wanted him to have the final say It’s learnt that they also felt it was crucial that the World Cup-winning captain was around to guide his successor in the early days of leading the team in the highly-demanding shorter forms READ:Replace MS Dhoni at your peril Gary Kirsten had said couple of monthsago “Virat is doing an excellent job with the Test team and we know he is ready But the pressures of ODI captaincy are different And they wanted MS to be around overseeing matters on the field and guiding Virat as he takes his first few steps as the limited-overs captain” said sources “They didn’t want a situation where MS hangs up his boots and Virat is left to take on the mantle all by himself” For the record Dhoni’s Test retirement had come completely out of the blue following the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne on December 30 2014 with one match still to go in the series His sudden departure then meant that the captaincy was thrust upon Kohli for the final Test in Sydney While there has been speculation regarding Dhoni’s future in the game for quite some time his agent Arun Pandey told The Indian Express that his client wasn’t going anywhere soon He also insisted that the 2019 World Cup was still very much a part of Dhoni’s plans “All great leaders know when to quit He knows the team is ready He still has plans to play international cricket for the next three to four years and play the 2019 World Cup He’s arguably still the fittest cricketer in the country presently” said Pandey For all the latest

WRITING seems to be on the wall for the incumbent BCCI top brass as it looks almost certain that their days at the helm are numbered On Monday the Lodha committee continued to tighten the screws on the board by packing off an email to two banks directing them to not disburse any funds from the BCCI accounts to the 25 state associations as was decided during an emergent working committee held by the board on Saturday MUST READ |Miffed BCCI to cancel ongoing India-New Zealandseries The committee had already pulled up the board for having violated a number of points in the July 18 judgement during their AGM and asked the Supreme Court to ‘supersede the present office bearers’ and appoint a new panel of administrators to run the board’s affairs with immediate effect It looks likely now that once the BCCI files a response to this status report on October 6 the apex court will go ahead and pull the plug on Anurag Thakur & Co During the emergent working committee meeting the board had decided to distribute the compensation that they had received from the broadcasters following the cancellation of the Champions League T20 to each of its member associations—an amount of Rs 19 crore each to the 25 state units But in a mail to Yes Bank and Bank of Maharashtra—which hold the BCCI’s accounts—that is also marked to CEO Rahul Johri treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry and secretary Ajay Shirke Lodha committee secretary Gopal Sankaranarayanan has written that the ‘disbursement of these amounts are not routine’ and directed them to not go ahead with the transaction “It has come to the notice of this Committee that certain decisions have been taken at the ‘Emergent Working Committee’ meeting on 30th September 2016 to disburse large funds to the various member associations You are aware that by way of this Committee’s direction dated 3182016 no further decisions were to be taken regarding the future apart from routine matters The disbursement of these amounts are not routine and in any case not emergent” he writes ALSO READ |BCCI’s fix: IPL Champions Trophy 2017 or Lodha Committeereforms Sankaranarayanan then adds that the ‘first set of deadlines’ stipulated by the committee which he states the board has ‘breached’ had included the ‘fund disbursement policy’ The emergent working committee meeting had been called for prior to the SGM that was convened to discuss the implementation of the new MoU and Rules and Regulations The SGM itself had been postponed by a day from Friday to Saturday thereby resulting in the board missing the September 30 deadline to accept the first set of reforms “You are also aware that the BCCI has chosen to breach the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court as well as the first set of Timelines set out by this Committee which includes the Fund Disbursement policy to be framed by 3092016 As the status report is to be taken up for directions by the Hon’ble Court on Thursday 6102016 you are hereby directed not to take any steps towards financial disbursement of the amounts as resolved /approved after the direction dated 3182016 Any violation of this direction will be placed before the Hon’ble Supreme Court for appropriate directions” the letter reads The BCCI had then gone on to release a press statement post their SGM announcing that they had unanimously adopted nine of the Lodha reforms But these did not include the contentious ‘one state one vote’ policy the fixed tenures for BCCI officials and the age-limit for their eligibility They had also however added riders and disclaimers to some of the key recommendations that had been accepted—not giving voting rights to the representative of the players’ association for example as prescribed by the committee The BCCI had initially attracted the wrath of the Lodha committee after they went ahead and breached the Lodha committee’s directive to stick to ‘routine matters’ concerning the season that had gone by during their AGM on September 21 They announced their new selection panels and nominated Shirke as the secretary among other key decisions It is in response to these decisions that the committee had asked the Supreme Court to appoint a new panel in place of the present board officials and also render all the decisions taken post the July 18 verdict as ‘ineffective’ And the SC looks all set to accept the committee’s request on

(Source: Reuters) Top News Swansea City manager Bob Bradley does not blame the fans for booing his team off at halftime after watching them fall three goals behind a visiting Manchester United inside 33 minutes at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday Swansea have not won in the Premier League since the first day of the season and are second-bottom in the 20-team Premier League by virtue of a single goal’s difference tied on five points with last-placed Sunderland A Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace after Paul Pogba had opened the scoring in the 15th minute was enough to condemn Swansea to their eighth defeat in 11 league games this season and Bradley called on his players to take responsibility for the result “We understand very clearly where we are There’s no hiding from the situation” Bradley the league’s first American coach said after the game “They (the fans) have every right to be angry at halftime We have to be honest about the work that needs to be done “There’s only one way to win the support of fans and that’s to play better and take points… Once we get a result or two I think everyone will say ‘Okay we have finally turned this thing around’” Defender Mike van der Hoorn got the Swans a consolation when he headed home in the second half but Bradley took no comfort from the goal after watching his side’s meek first-half capitulation “In the first half we were pushed too deep when we got the ball we gave it back too quickly and we were not dangerous” he added “We had people close to the ball a lot of the time but we didn’t have enough commitment to close things down and
