Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday appeared disappointed with the Supreme Court`s order quashing his Saltlake plot allotment.

Reacting to the Apex Court`s order, the left-hander said: "I have put in a lot of money fighting for the land in court and I have spent about two and half years in court to get the land. I have to deal with it."

"When you get a land from the government, there would be some procedures attached to it. I was away for a long time, I will have to sort this out with the chief minister," he added.

The Supreme Court had on May 26 set aside the allotment of 63.04 kathas of land in the Saltlake by the West Bengal government in 2009 to Ganguly for setting up an integrated School.

On another court-related issue in which he was dragged to the Calcutta High Court by the Zee Group for not honouring a three-year deal, Ganguly said he had got the permission to go ahead with another TV quiz show.

"I have got an order from the court to do this show that means I`ve done something right. I think I am respectful enough not to break a contract," he said.

Ganguly had a three-year agreement with the Zee group but reneged on the deal after two seasons. The petition also contended that Ganguly failed to honour the contract through fraudulent misrepresentations.
