BCCI President N Srinivasan, who has decided to continue as the chief of the cricket governing body despite the IPL spot-fixing scandal, said on Monday that his resignation is being sought only by a "hounding media."

Srinivasan, whose son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings CEO Gurunath Meiyappan has been arrested for alleged involvement in betting, reached Chennai after attending the IPL final on Sunday night in Kolkata, where the crowd booed him during the presentation ceremony.

"The press is hounding me, the media is hounding me. I have already clarified everything in the press conference. I have no reason to resign," Srinivasan retorted when journalists at the airport asked him about the scandal and whether he should resign on moral grounds, PTI reported.
