Rohan Jaitley, the 31-year-old son for of former finance minister late Arun Jaitley, has been elected unopposed as the new president of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA). Rohan is slated to remain in the post till June 30, 2021.

For the rest of the office bearers (treasurer and director), elections will be held on November 5,6 and 8 and results will be declared on November 9.

Rohan, a lawyer by profession had filed his papers on the last day of nomations. Notably, late Arun Jaitley had also served as the president of DDCA between 1999 and 2013.

Rohan Jaitley was expected to be the unanimous choice of all warring factions at the DDCA. Sunil Kumar Goel, the only other candidate, had withdrawn after filing his nomination for the president’s post.

However, Rohan had said that he would not mind a contest as it was in line with the deomocratic process.

“I don’t mind a contest. It is good for the democratic process. The Idea is to bring in good people at appropriate times to have checks and balances in place,” Rohan Jaitley had said PTI after filing his nomination papers.

“Yes, I have filed my nomination today. I would like to work for the betterment of Delhi cricket and would love to have everyone on the same page. It’s good to come back and serve the association with an aim to take it where it should be,” he had added.

The DDCA was a headless body for nearly a year after Rajat Sharma resigned from the post citing corruption and unprofessionalism in the association. Since then a lot of office bearers have been suspended at different times by the High Court and DDCA ombudsman.
