President Nixon had to quit for cover-up, so must Srinivasan: IS Bindra

The above quote by the former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President is a reference to the Watergate scandal involving United States of America (USA) President Richard Nixon in the early 1970s.

Bindra added: “It’s a moment of shame for us to see the game gaining such disrepute across the globe for a single man’s obsession with power. It is time for all of us involved in the sport; all the stakeholder of the game in the country to take a call and express our displeasure at the way the game is being administered. What stung me most was the word “nauseating” by the apex court in describing BCCI and [Narayanswamy] Srinivasan. If that is not reason enough for someone to be ashamed, I wonder what is? It has been over 24 hours and the BCCI and its chief have taken no action as yet.”

Bindra is a former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer who has been associated with cricket administration since 1975. He was the President of the Punjab Cricket Association for nearly three decades a post he resigned recently. He was also the Special Secretary to President Zail Singh in the 1980s.
