New Delhi: In the wake of the recent spot-fixing controversies which has rocked the Indian Premier League (IPL), former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi on Wednesday slammed BCCI chief N Srinivasan and asked for his resignation.
Modi expressed his vent on his Twitter handle where he tweeted, “This spot fixing mess - is getting even worse. Srinivasan and family should immediately resign. They should be banned with immediate effect.”
The former IPL commissioner also criticised Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) CEO Gurunath Meiyappan, who happens to be the son-in-law of Srinivasan.
“If Guru is involved then Srini is indeed doing this for vested interest & his rubber stamps @ShuklaRajiv & Arun Jaitley should not be spared,” Modi wrote on his Twitter page.
Modi even didn’t spare BJP leader Arun Jaitley and IPL chief Rajiv Shukla claiming that all of them had ruined the game.
“Bcci president / Csk owner / control Ipl by putting dummy @ShuklaRajiv With legal supremo Arun Jaitley - trio who have ruined cricket,” he said.
Notably three Rajasthan Royals cricketers – S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested for their alleged role in the IPL spot-fixing fiasco.
