'Srinivasan will stay away from probe'

Senior BJP leader and BCCI vice-president Arun Jaitley on Sunday said N Srinivasan will maintain an “arms-length distance” from the probe against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan in the IPL-6 betting charges.

“There will be an enquiry which will be on, the charges being criminal will be investigated. There are no charges against him (Srinivasan). We are not going into this matter. Now, if you step aside and discharge no function, then you maintain a complete arms-length distance from the cricket administration which he has to maintain,” said Jaitley.

“Srinivisan will be at arms-length distance till such time the enquiry is over. The entire administration will be run by the Working Committee of the Board. Mr Dalmiya will get decisions ratified by the Working Committee of the Board. The committee will run the day-to-day affairs of the BCCI,” Jaitley told a news channel.

Jaitley said the decision taken by the Working Committee in Chennai will help the BCCI restore its lost credibility.

“I had shared the unease of every cricket lover in the last two weeks. Under this management, at least you will have a Board with some credibility and since the Board has taken this decision, I thought we must give it a chance.”
