Rohan Jaitley, son of late Union Minister Arun Jaitley, was in October elected unopposed as the president of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) after the lone candidate who had filed his nomination against him withdrew his candidature. Elections for six posts were held between November 5 and 8. The other posts for which elections were held were for the posts of treasurer and four directors.

“I don’t mind a contest. It is good for the democratic process. The Idea is to bring in good people at appropriate times to have checks and balances in place. Yes, I have filed my nomination today. I would like to work for the betterment of Delhi cricket and would love to have everyone on the same page. It’s good to come back and serve the association with an aim to take it where it should be,”,” Rohan Jaitley told PTI after filing his nomination papers.
