New Delhi [India], February 16 (ANI): Supreme Court on Tuesday said that it would hear the petition on March 23, on the plea filed by BCCI seeking a direction for an extension of tenures of BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah.
A bench of the Apex Court, headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao and also comprising Justice S Ravindra Bhatt fixed March 23 to hear the petition filed by the BCCI.
The Supreme Court today allowed the request of Solicitor General (SG) Tushar Mehta, who sought more time and thereby it adjourned the hearing to March 23.
