Srinivasan defiant, refuses to resign as BCCI President

A defiant BCCI President N Srinivasan today rejected demands for his resignation in the wake of arrest of his son-in-law and CSK team owner Gurunath Meiyappan on charges of betting.

"I have done no wrong, I have no intention to resign. I can't be bulldozed or railroaded into resigning. Some sources are trying to put pressure now...There is no question of it," he told reporters on his arrival here.

He said the BCCI will follow strictly all its rules. Law will take its course, he added in a brief interaction with journalists at the airport.

Ever since news broke out about Gurunath, the CSK Team Principal, was involved in betting on IPL matches in association with actor Vindoo Dara Singh and other bookies, there has been a clamour that Srinivasan should step down.

The chorus intensified after the midnight arrest of his son-in-law by Mumbai Police which said that he was arrested after they came to the conclusion that Gurunath was involved in the offence of betting.
