I am an honest man and I don`t seek publicity: Srinivasan
New Delhi: BCCI president N Srinivasan today rubbished Lalit Modi`s claim that the 2009 IPL auction of Andrew Flintoff was rigged and said that the former Commssioner was only seeking "publicity" by making such baseless statements.
"I haven`t watched the television programme where he (Modi) has said all this. All I can state is that, there is absolutely no substance or truth in what he is saying," said Srinivasan.
Modi in an interview to a private channel has said that he was "arm-twisted to allow Andrew Flintoff to go to CSK" during 2009 IPL auctions.
Srinivasan on his part said, "He (Modi) is talking about 2009 auctions and this is 2012. If what he is saying is true, then why didn`t he speak out earlier?"
When questioned that whether his silence on many issues has sent wrong signals, he replied, "If you say so, then you must be knowing that I have spoken to the media and expressed my views on Sahara issue. I am an honest man. I don`t seek any publicity and that`s why I maintain a dignified silence."
