After the arrest of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, BCCI chief N Srinivasan seems to be riding against the tide as even leaders from the political class seek his resignation.

Perhaps the strongest remark was delivered by parliamentary affairs minister Kamal Nath, who said that the Tamil Nadu-based businessman’s position as the BCCI chief has become “untenable”.

“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.
