ISLAMABAD - The Senate Standing Committee on Sports Monday unanimously passed a resolution urging the government for an early removal of the present set up of the Pakistan Cricket Board. The committee declared the PCB administration incapable of managing the affairs and has in written asked for its sacking. Assailing the incumbent PCB management, angry senate body asked the government that the management had no such plan to promote the game of the cricket in Pakistan and the high ups were not capable to run the affairs of the board smoothly. However, the PCB's officials remained on the defencive throughout the four hours long proceeding. Chief Operating Officer (COO) Saleem Altaf, Chief Accountant Muhammad Naeem Akhtar and Member Governing Board Shakil Sheikh represented the PCB in the meeting. Senator Syed Tahir Mushaddi presided over the meeting in the absence of chairman Senator Zafar Iqbal Choudhary at the Parliament House. "It is our considered opinion after having met the three members of the PCB that the affairs in the board are in disarray and current management does not have the capabilities and vision for any improvement in the game. We, the sports committee has recommended to the government that the present management should be immediately changed and competent people are inducted to run the PCB," acting chairman read the resolution in the house. Former COO PCB Shafqat Nagmi gave a detailed presentation to the members of the house regarding the PCB's projects, which were started in his tenure. At this occasion, Senator, Haroon Akhtar appreciated the presentation of Nagmi and said that the PCB should apologise to him on their irresponsible statements that hurt the prestige of Nagmi. The House also directed the PCB officials to shift their foreign currency accounts in the well-reputed banks. "We have Rs 2.6 millions in our kitty and our foreign currency accounts are running in the Bank Alfalh, Arif Habib, Dubai Islami and Saudi Bank," Naeem Akhtar informed the committee. Meanwhile, Senator Haroon Akhtar hinted that the former management had a plan to develop 33 cricket grounds in 2009 at the district level but the sitting management brushed aside the ongoing projects. Akhtar requested the member of the committee to give sometime to the PCB for the preparation of a comprehensive briefing on the all issues. "We need some time to give a detailed presentation to the house of the future projects. Our basic aim is to promote the game and build a strong national team,"he added. However, the committee recommended in writing to the President of Pakistan, who is also Patron-in-chief of the PCB, that the board chairman did not prefer to attend the meeting. "The appearance of the PCB chief was a lawful requirement of the committee to get explanation for questioning the authority of the senate committee. But he denied the prestige of Parliament by not appearing in this house," said Col. (R) Tahir Mushahdi. Altaf remained silent for most of the time during the committee meeting and did not have any answer to the volley of questions. However, Naeem, agreed that the board could not present the figures correctly in their financial statement submitted to senate committee and promised that he would submit a better report in next the sitting. He also admitted that the PCB chief statement about the bankruptcy of the institution was incorrect. Senator Muhammad Enver Baig, Senator Haroon Akhtar, Senator Fozia Fakhur Zaman, Senator Nilofar Bakhtiar, Senator Sabina Rauf and Senator Dr. Kouser Fardaus attended the important meeting of the Senate Standing Committee on Sports and signed on the resolution.
