Say Ashiq Bukhari 'dictatorship', ruining game to mint personal fortunes

Early Times Report
srinagar, July 12: The first class cricketers of Kashmir who have played at national level have come out in public to expose rot in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association saying that the JKCA Chief Executive Officer Ashiq Bukhari was ruining the game of cricket to presumably mint personal fortunes and thus was behaving like a "dictator."
Addressing a press conference here at Kashmir Press Club, the national level cricketers who have played Ranji Trophy in the past said that Bukhari, who is former Deputy Inspector General of Police, and is seen a "close aide" of the Peoples Democratic Party, was ruining the game of cricket.
The cricketers led by Sayyed Parvaiz Qaisar Qalandar and others including Zahoor Bhat, Abdul Qayoom Bagao, Majid Dar and Nisar Khanday, all former Ranji Trophy Players, told media persons that Bukhari's "dictatorship" has reached a level that now the veterans were not being allowed to even enter the cricket field lest his "corruption gets exposed."
"We have given our sweat and blood for cricket and now he is using police to keep us away," the cricket players said adding that same was the scene in Jammu as well where Bukhari's misadventures are ruining the game.
They said Bukhari was trying to hold fake elections and has even started changing the constitution of the JKCA to meet his interests.
The cricket players said that Bukhari was taking most of the decisions in a dubious manner and in violation of the legal guidelines.
They said contracts were being given in a hidden manner and that money meant for the promotion of cricket was being misused by a coterie on personal needs including TA and DA.
The players said there was a need to probe the irregularities at the JKCA and that Governor SP Malik must personally look into the matter.
The players who addressed the press conference said unless Bukhari was removed from the post and elections were held in transparent manner the JKCA would be devastated and that it was the right time to salvage it.
It is pertinent mention that Bukhari is seen as close to PDP and was previously accused of having allegedly amassed assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
During the previous PDP led government he was seen as the undercover security advisor of then Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
