Alleging vested interests in Delhi & Districts Cricket Association (DDCA), Senior journalist Rajat Sharma on Saturday resigned from the post of president.
He expressed his inability to continue amidst "various pulls and pressures" within the organisation. After resignation, he shared a post on Twitter in which he expressed his helplessness: “"It was not easy to work here. But your faith gave me strength. Today I have decided to leave the post of DDCA President and have sent my resignation to Apex Council. Thank you for the love and respect you have given me: Rajat Sharma".
Sharma's nearly 20-month tenure was largely restless due to his obvious differences with general secretary Vinod Tihara, who enjoys a fair amount of support base in the organisation.
"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 said in a statement.
