To tackle the situation, the caretaker chairman has now sought the help of the Board of Governors (BoG).

A well placed source further revealed that during the recent meeting between Najam Sethi and former office bearers of a few regions the Caretaker Chairman was presented with a proposal, according to which, court cases against the PCB, at the Islamabad High Court (IHC), would be withdrawn if the PCB would disband the interim committees on various regions.

The source added that Najam Sethi is willing to dissolve the regional interim committees as he [Sethi] feels it would help him to carry out elections and appoint elected bodies in those regions. This action, Mr. Sethi believes, will also aid in the case pending at the Islamabad High Court.

The source said that the caretaker chairman also wanted to appoint a panel of three honorary advisers to assist him in dealing with various issues face up to the regions and districts.

This is worth mentioning here that the Islamabad High Court, while describing Najam Sethi as the caretaker PCB chairman, directed him to hold elections within 90 days.
