Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Mar 12: Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy and National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah today rejected as unfortunate the allegations of his involvement in the multi-crore J&K Cricket Association (JKCA) scam, an issue which rocked the Legislative Assembly today with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) disrupting Question Hour for about half an hour before staging a walk-out followed by a dharna outside the Legislature demanding registration of a FIR by the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) against Dr Abdullah like Suresh Kalmadi.”I have not taken a penny in any form from the JKCA. There is no question of any money being bungled. The tarnishing of my image is unfortunate,” Farooq, who heads the JKCA, told reporters in Delhi, breaking his silence on the allegations that there was bungling of funds received by the State cricket body from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)
