“It's absolutely untenable, is there an iota of credibility left,” said Nath on Saturday, while calling on Srinivasan to tender his resignation. Nath added that being a cricket-lover, his was a personal stand.
Cricketer-turned-politician Kirti Azad of BJP was did not mince his words when he said that if Srinivasan resigns, many more in BCCI would have to follow suit. “I don’t know resignation or no resignation. How many resignations will you take?” he asked.
BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said there was a question of morality and it was upon an individual to decide whether he should resign or not. CPI’s D Raja was of the view that the BCCI chief should resign on moral grounds.
