Jyotiraditya Scindia's call for my resignation his personal view, says N Srinivasan
Jyotiraditya Scindia, chairman of the finance committee of the BCCI, was the first member of the cricket board to come out openly and say on Tuesday that N Srinivasan must resign till the probe against corruption in IPL is on.
Beleaguered BCCI President N Srinivasan on Tuesday brushed aside senior Board functionary Jyotiraditya Scindia's call for his resignation, saying that "it was his view". (Read: Scindia's call for Srinivasan's resignation)
Asked by reporters about Scindia asking for his resignation on moral grounds after his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested on charges of betting in IPL, Srinivasan said, "It's his view. I don't want to reply beyond that."
Earlier in the day, Scindia became the first BCCI office-bearer to openly call for Srinivasan's resignation in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal, saying that propriety demanded that he should step down.
While Scindia wanted Srinivasan to step down till the case of Gurunath is decided, Union Minister and another senior Board functionary Farooq Abdullah backed the under-fire president, saying there was no reason for him to quit.
