N Srinivasan set to contest in BCCI elections despite SC ruling

Mr Srinivasan, please step down to protect the game

New Delhi: Sep 27, 2013

Unruffled by the Supreme Court order prohibiting him from taking charge even on winning the election, under-pressure Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief N Srinivasan said on Friday, that he will stand for the Board’s Presidential polls in the Annual General Meeting in Chennai on Sunday.

Speaking to PTI, Srinivasan said the court has not made a single observation which should stop him from seeking an extended one-year term as Board President at the end of his regular two-year tenure.

“Nobody has stopped me from contesting elections and attending the AGM. Before taking my comments, kindly go through the observations made by the honourable Supreme Court.

“It states clearly that I have not been stopped from attending the AGM and I am also going to contest the election, why shall I not contest the elections?” fumed the 68-year-old Tamil Nadu strongman.

The apex court may not have barred him from contesting the elections but has asked him not to take charge even if he wins but Srinivasan refused to say anything on that.

“I am not going to make any comment on that issue and you are free to write whatever you feel like but write the truth,” he said.

Hearing a plea by the Cricket Association of Bihar, which sought to stop Srinivasan from contesting, the Supreme Court on Friday, allowed the Tamil Nadu strongman to fight it out but told him not to take charge even if he is elected till further orders.

“In case Srinivasan is elected as President, he will not take charge until further orders,” a bench comprising Justices AK Patnaik and JS Kehar said.

The bench took strong exception to Srinivasan still holding charge of BCCI when his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan has been charge sheeted in connection with the IPL 2013 spot-fixing case.
