Former BCCI chief IS Bindra believes the ongoing situation is uglier and is deep-rooted than earlier assumed.
 
He said he asked N Srinivasan's resignation and sort a clarification about the three-member inquiry commission set up to probe the involvement of Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.
 
Bindra is defiant on his stand as he called the entire meeting as a sham which was organised to fool the people.
 
In the meeting he realised that the scenario is much uglier than previously assumed.
 
He also expressed his disappointment over the working committee members' approach towards the issue.
 
Bindra claimed that many members at the meeting felt that the best course for Srinivasan was to quit as a first step to restore peoples' faith in the game in general and the Board in particular.
 
He said that soon after calling the meeting to order, Board president N Srinivasan shocked the gathering by saying that the meet was an "informal one as a board affiliate questioned its validity since the mandatory 72 hours notice was not given as required under the BCCI constitution".
