I am not taking charge of BCCI: N Srinivasan
Chennai: Narayanaswami Srinivasan, elected unopposed Sunday as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a third year, said he was not taking charge as per the directions of the Supreme Court.
"Leave me alone ... I don`t want to comment anything today," Srinivasan told IANS after the BCCI Annual General Meeting (AGM) here where he won re-election as board chief.
Srinivasan categorically said he was not taking charge of the BCCI as per the instructions of the Supreme Court but has asked other office bearers to do so.
"I have won unopposed but I am not taking charge. I have asked the new office bearers to take charge. I am awaiting the Supreme Court order. There are lot of things on me now," said Srinivasan.
Srinivasan was the lone presidential candidate put forward by the South Zone, from where he got the proposer and the seconder.
The Supreme Court Friday allowed the BCCI to go ahead with Sunday`s AGM and the elections but restrained Srinivasan from taking charge even if he got re-elected.
Srinivasan can only take charge after the Supreme Court rules on a petition filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) secretary Aditya Verma. The apex court will hear the case Monday.
CAB, which is not recognised by the BCCI, had moved the Supreme Court last Monday seeking to restrain Srinivasan from getting re-elected for a third term on the ground that his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan is facing a probe on the allegations of betting in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Srinivasan`s name also figures among those charged by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in a corruption case involving YSR Congress party chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.
