The executive committee of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) will be exploring disciplinary measures, including issuing show cause notice to former India cricketers Kirti Azad and Bishan Singh Bedi, for making corruption allegations against its former president Arun Jaitley.

The DDCA executive committee is likely to meet soon at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

“We will be exploring all possible options including issuing show notice to the two (Bedi, Azad) who are also voting members. The members have taken a strong view on this matter,” acting DDCA president Chetan Chauhan today told PTI.

DDCA sources had earlier claimed that the executive committee was already mulling various options with regard to the former cricketers.

BJP MP Azad, who has been leading a campaign against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on alleged corruption in the DDCA, was yesterday suspended by the party which charged him for anti-party activities and accused him of “colluding” with Congress and AAP to bring it into “disrepute”.

The action of the BJP Parliamentary Board to suspend him from the party’s primary membership with immediate effect came three days after his press conference attacking Jaitley and subsequent acts of defiance both inside and outside Parliament.
