'Happy that Srini was not reinstated'
Tuesday 02 September 2014

Aditya Verma, the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar, expressed his happiness after Supreme Court decided not to reinstate N Srinivasan as the BCCI chief, till the Mudgal Committee submits its final report.

"The BCCI plea had only one motive to get Srinivasan back into the board by hook or crook and make him eligible for the post of president another three-year term in the next AGM later this month. What is going on in the BCCI is highly undemocratic," Verma was quoted as saying in a press release.

"The BCCI has one-point programme to look after the interest of one man and not the game. I am happy that the honourable court has not reinstated Srinivasan. The BCCI might try it again but we are going to oppose it," Verma added.

The apex court on Monday decided not to reinstate Srinivasan as the BCCI President, and  also granted a two-month extension to the Mudgal Committee to submit the final report in the IPL 2013 betting and spot fixing scandal.
