Much after the BCCI working committee meeting had ended on Sunday, Inderjit Singh Bindra was still moving around in the corridors of the venue.
President of the Punjab Cricket Association and a former BCCI chief, he had announced to the media that he was the lone dissenting voice against N Srinivasan and that none of the Board members other than him had asked for his resignation.
There was a sense of despair in Bindra’s voice as he went on how the other members had 'not shown guts’ to call for Srinivasan’s head at the emergency meeting.
When Srinivasan’s son-in-law, M Gurunath was arrested by the Mumbai Police, Bindra was the first one to demand Srinivasan's ouster. In the coming days, he was joined by more people but on D-Day they backtracked, leaving Bindra high and dry.
“I am not going to challenge this meeting. I am going to the court of public,” he said. “If we wanted to restore the faith of the public, we needed something more than this. I suggested, let him (Srinivasan) step aside until September, but he said he is not going to resign,” he said.
