IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi today circulated the agenda for tomorrow's Governing Council meeting, asking the members to give their complaints against him in writing and with supporting documents.


"On the agenda, will be a discussion on any complaints received in writing from members of the Governing Council against the Chairman, other members of the Council and/or the Board of Control for Cricket in India," Modi said in a statement.

"Members of the Governing Council have been requested to give all such complaints in writing with the requisite supporting documents at the meeting on the morning of April 26 to the Chairman and Commissioner, so they can be replied in full," he added.

The single point agenda chosen by Modi appears to be a bid to block any discussion on serious allegations against him widely reported in the media over the past several days. That is because, it would be near impossible for the Governing Council members to provide documentary support since such documents are with the Income Tax and other investigative agencies.

In a surprise turn of events, Modi today decided to attend the Governing Council meeting and also set the agenda for it, forcing the BCCI top brass to redraw its strategy to oust him.

But some in the party are asking whether a coalition government, which will have members of different castes, will impact the selection of the CM candidate?
