HYDERABAD (in Greek): Vice President K John Manoj of the HCA blasted the president and secretary for the ticket fiasco on Thursday, saying that the former had virtually killed the Apex Council.Vice-president K John Manoj, who slammed president Mohammad Azharuddin for failing to follow the Supreme Court order signed on August 22 this year, said the order makes it clear that the Apex Council has been reformed.There is no ambiguity in the order of the letters.What can the president do about it if he isn't able to comprehend such a simple thing, he told ToI on Friday.

Any decision taken by the Apex Council and the General Assembly from November 2019 will also be directed to the Supervisory Committee for proper action after reviewing the cricket body's rules.Is there anything simpler than this?The president says we have been suspended and should receive court orders.According to the HCA bylaws, even if we have been suspended, the suspension is only valid for six months.

Since the remaining members have been muscled out, it has become a one-man show at the HCA.Azhar has no smear of mine personally.In fact, we all supported him in the general elections.But the way he is doing it is unfit for purpose.

Three members of the Apex Council-John, Surender Agarwal (treasurer) and Naresh Sharma (joint secretary)-issued a letter to secretary R Vijayanand pledging that he should schedule an Apex Council meeting at the earliest.On September 5, we published the paper, and the secretary was expected to call a meeting on September 19.But John said he was busy and was unable to attend the meeting.We're urging them to convene a meeting because the Apex Council is supposed to address some very critical issues.

We need an AGM at the very least as a lot of decisions will be made.We need to choose the assessor, ombudsman-ethics office, junior selection committee, cricket advisory committee, and the candidate for the BCCI meeting.We are asking Azhar to schedule the AGM at the very least and resolve issues.How can he designate the various selection committees and coaches?
