SIKKIM: Sikkim Cricket Association condemns “False” Statements by former football captain Bhaichung Bhutia 

Former Indian football captain and Sikkim Football Association advisor Bhaichung Bhutia’s “reckless” utterances against the association receiving grant-in-aid to the tune of Rs. 15-20 crore annually have been sharply criticised by the Sikkim Cricket Association (SICA). 

Money does not equal good governance, according to a press release released by SICA, the cricket organisation. 

SICA has also implemented a number of structural reforms, bringing openness to all parts of governance, including financial matters, the establishment and construction of District bodies, and even giving them voting rights and governance powers. 

“This is entirely false and we urge Mr. Bhaichung to get his facts checked before speaking out against other associations or sporting bodies, who are only trying their best to help the state of Sikkim and its people,” the cricket association stated. 

“SICA would also take this opportunity to inform the general public that all and any grants received by us is in the public domain and has been made available for anyone interested, through the BCCI website,” the association added.

TRIPURA: Assam Police arrests head of Barak Democratic Front Pradip Dutta Roy 

Assam police have detained Pradip Datta Roy, a former Tripura student leader who is now the leader of the Barak Democratic Front, for allegedly using the name language to promote suspicion among the people. 

He was apprehended just hours after Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma issued a statement saying that a political party seeking to expand its base in Assam is attempting to sow rifts between different groups, Tripurainfo reported. 

Pradip Datta Roy, the President of the NSUI (National Student Union of India), a student wing of the Congress, transferred his base to Silchar, Assam, in the mid-80s and became involved in Congress politics. 

As the leader of the All Cachar, Karimgunj, and Hailakandi Students’ Association, he rose to prominence. 

As stated by Tripurainfo, the immediate reason for his detention was giving a 48-hour ultimatum to the Cachar Deputy Commissioner seeking the removal of hoarding written in Assamese. 

It has been interpreted by the administration as an attempt to create rift between the communities.
