Senior journalist Rajat Sharma on Saturday resigned from the post of president of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA).

Sharma cited his inability to continue amidst “various pulls and pressures” within the organisation. “The cricket administration here is full of pulls and pressures all the time. I feel that vested interests are always actively working against the interest of cricket,” Sharma said in a statement.

“It seems that it may not be possible to carry on in DDCA with my principles of integrity, honesty and transparency, which I am not willing to compromise at any cost,” he added.

Sharma stated that he faced many “roadblocks” while discharging his duties. “In my endeavour though I faced many roadblocks, opposition and oppressions, just to keep me from discharging my duties in fair and transparent manner, however, somehow I kept moving with only one agenda that all promises made to the members must be fulfilled while keeping the interest and welfare of Cricket paramount at all times,” he said.

Sharma had joined cricket administration after receiving active backing from former finance minister late Arun Jaitley.
