New Delhi: Beleaguered N Srinivasan today moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of its orders to enable him function as BCCI President for the non-IPL 2014 activities of cricket.
Srinivasan has sought modification of apex court`s March 28 and May 16 interim orders by which he was restrained from functioning as the BCCI President and former cricketers Sunil Gavaskar and Shiv Lal Yadav were asked to continue as the Presidents of BCCI till September 2014 when the matter will be heard next.
“Suitably modify the orders dated March 28, 2014 and May 16, 2014 passed by this Court and permit the applicant herein to function with immediate effect as the President of BCCI in so far as the non-IPL-2014 related activities are concerned,” Srinivasan said in the application.
Srinivasan said he was elected as the President of the cricket body in September last in the AGM held on the orders of the apex court and if the orders are not modified immediately his one year tenure would come to an end.
He said the restrictions imposed on him from discharging the functions of the President of BCCI has led to tremendous loss of goodwill for him and has become a major source of embarrassment in the eyes of the public despite his conduct as the in the post always being above board.
He submitted he has a strong case on merits and is most likely to emerge unscathed from the baseless allegations levelled against him with respect to betting and spot-fixing.
