BCCI will have to listen to us: Abdi
Chennai: Rajasthan Cricket Association representative and Lalit Modi`s lawyer Mehmood Abdi on Saturday said that the BCCI will have to hear him out during the Board`s Working Committee meeting on how the banned former IPL commissioner was allowed to contest RCA elections.
The BCCI`s top brass assembled here today for an Emergent Working Committee meeting to discuss the possible implications of Modi`s re-entry into the RCA. Modi was allowed to fight for the post of RCA president in the December 19 elections held under the supervision of a Supreme Court-appointed observer. The results of the polls are expected to be known on January 6 when the matter relating to the RCA comes up for hearing before the Supreme Court.
Asked if he will meet Board President N Srinivasan, Abdi said, "K K Sharma (Outgoing RCA Secretary) told Sanjay Patel (BCCI Secretary) that Mr Abdi is coming (for the meeting). We are a member, why will they (BCCI) not listen to us. They will have to listen to us."
"We have come here as RCA representative. We are not outsiders, we are full time member of BCCI," said Abdi, who was yesterday appointed by the RCA as its representative to present its case to the BCCI. Asked what the RCA would do if it is suspended by the BCCI, he said, "They don`t have the sanction (power) to do that. We are bound by Rajasthan Sports Code."
He said Modi`s return to the country was difficult as he faces "threat from the underworld and every agency knows this."
Abdi is the president of Ganganagar District Association and he also contested for the post of deputy president in the RCA elections.
