Bedi's threat to take legal action against DDCA
Spin legend Bishan Singh Bedi has threatened to take legal action against the DDCA if his name is not removed from a spectators’ stand at the Kotla with immediate effect.
On Wednesday, Bedi had shot a letter to the Delhi and District Cricket Association, lambasting it for installing a statue of its late former president Arun Jaitley at the Kotla.
In the absence of any response from DDCA, Bedi wrote another letter to the cricket body on Saturday.
“... I hope in our country people still have a right to decide as individuals what they wish to be associated with & where their nameplates can hang with dignity. Please don’t push me to take a legal recourse, ” Bedi wrote in his letter addressed to DDCA president Rohan Jaitley.
Bedi had also decided to renounce his membership of the DDCA.
Jaitley’s statue will be unveiled by BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Monday in the presence of union home minister Amit Shah and former BCCI chief Anurag Thakur, among others.
