Pune, Oct 01: Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) chairman Dnyaneshwar Agashe, who feels wronged at being denied his right to vote in the election for the post of
president of cricket board, was consulting his lawyers today to seek justice from the court.

Agashe, who arrived here from Kolkata, said a decision on seeking the court`s intervention in the matter would be taken shortly.

"I am consulting my lawyers today and a decision would be
taken on approaching the court in this regard shortly," Agashe told here.

MCA secretary Anant Mate had said yesterday that "We plan to file a writ petition in the Bombay High Court for denying Agashe his right to vote in the BCCI election for the post of president which was held on September 29 in Kolkata."

The denial to Agashe to exercise his franchise because of factionalism in the MCA saw Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar losing by one vote in the election for BCCI president`s post.
