N Srinivasan, who on Sunday agreed to"step aside" as BCCI President under a compromise formula, arrived at the Emergent Working Committee meeting a couple of hours ahead of the scheduled time.

The meeting was scheduled to start at 2.30 pm.

Prior to the start of meeting there were speculations in the media that Srinivasan, an orthodox Tamil Brahmin, would arrive at the ITC Park Sheraton Hotel, the venue, between 10.30-11.30 am, considered an auspicious time on this day.

Bowing to all-round pressure, Srinivasan on Sunday agreed to "step aside" as BCCI President under a compromise formula that brought back former Chief Dalmiya as head of a four-member "interim arrangement" to run the Board, more than a fortnight after the spot-fixing scandal rocked Indian cricket.

Srinivasan refused to heed mounting demands for his resignation as Board Chief at a meeting of the Working Committee. He said there were no charges against him.
