Amitabh Choudhary: Who was he?
Amitabh Choudhary has been accused of committing irregularities in the conduct of the 7th Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) Civil Service Examination on numerous occasions while he was Chairman of JPSC.
These accusations came from the BJP, the opposition. Even the issues within the house have been raised by the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP). Choudhary chaired the Jharkhand State Cricket Association before taking over as head of the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JSCA).
Choudhary was unable to stand for election as he was serving as Acting BCCI Secretary for the JSCA elections in 2019. This is due to the clause requiring a cooling-off period, which the Supreme Court imposed in response to the recommendations of the Lodha committee aimed at improving the functioning of the BCCI. After that, Choudhary lost his position as BCCI administrator to new office holders under Sourav Ganguly, a former India captain.
