Anurag Thakur was the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (.@BCCI) until "Supreme Court of India Sacked Anurag Thakur" as President on 02/01/2017. 😳

Wait, how did he even get there?? 😲🤷⁉️

Himachal Pradesh had a Cricket Association since 1960, but obsolete. 🚱

So, Anurag tried his luck in Punjab cricket team in 90's. And after failing, he shifted his focus to the cricketing business in Punjab.💸

But, in vain🤷

So, when his father Prem Kumar Dhumal became Himachal Pradesh's Chief Minister('98-'03), Anurag wasted no time in "Making Himself As The President Of The Himachal Pradhesh Cricket Association (HPCA)" in 2000 😈👏

After becoming the HPCA President, Anurag Thakur "Made Himself the Chairman of Selectors for Ranji Trophy."⛔

He then "Selected Himself In The Ranji Team". And then "Also Elected Himself As The Captain"⁉️

Jiski bat uski batting👺🏌️

Anurag Thakur played "Just One" #RanjiTrophy match against Jammu & Kashmir in Nov'2000. Jammu & Kashmir won by 4 wickets." 😂

But, this stint qualified him to become a National Selector as per #BCCI rules. 😲

The father-son duo's 1st project was the cricket stadium in Dharamshala. 🏟️

FD suggested market rates for lease rent, but, Dhumal chaired the meeting himself, and voila.. "16 acres land tranfer approved @ Re 1/month for 99 Yrs"⁉️👏

Next Move : 2 hotels were constructed overlooking the stadium. 🏤

But, sadly, by demolishing a hostel, shifting a college & grabbing 720 sq.mts. of forest land!!

They allegedly cut down 500 trees for this😠😡
