Reeling under the caustic observations of the Supreme Court, beleaguered Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan has not only agreed to step aside but also become an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member to get rid of the tainted tag.

Srinivasan’s lawyers hope that the Supreme Court will take a more lenient view of Srinivasan if he wears an AAP topi and does his bit to make India free of corruption. “After all, to become a member of AAP means to become a paragon of virtue and righteousness,” said Srini’s lawyer, Thangapandian. Later in the day, the India Cements chairman is expected to give a missed call and take up primary membership of the fledgling anti corruption movement.

Srinivasan has already immersed himself into AAP activities by starting door to door campaigning for the local Lok Sabha candidate in his posh Adyar locality in Chennai. In true AAP tradition, Srinivasan, bristling with self-righteousness, was also on the verge of dubbing the Supreme Court bench as ‘Ambani’s agents’ but restrained himself after an aide pointed out that “there are some holy cows in the country that cannot be attacked. The Supreme Court is one such holy cow and he could be held in contempt of court.”

The Srinivasan camp’s plan A to extricate him from the legal mess was to have the case probed in a time bound manner by the CBI but it was shelved after someone pointed out that nowadays CBI director Ranjit Sinha doesn’t even take orders from Sonia Gandhi as he is awaiting transfer of power after General Elections.

Srinivasan is instead now pinning his hopes on a ‘clean chit’ in the form of a character certificate from Arvind Kejriwal or, even better, a probe by AAP’s internal Lokpal which has issued similar clean chits to the likes of Somnath Bharti, Shazia Ilmi and Prashant Bhushan earlier.
