New Delhi, May 23: IPL chairman and union minister Rajeev Shukla Thursday came out in defence of BCCI president N. Srinivasan, saying there is no need for him to step down.
"What is the need for BCCI chief to step down? If some MPs take bribe, does it mean parliament should be closed," Shukla told TV channel CNN-IBN.
"Whoever is caught should be punished, but is there any evidence against him (Srinivasan)" he asked.
Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, chief executive of Chennai Super Kings team of the IPL, has been summoned by Mumbai police in connection with the ongoing IPL spot fixing controversy.
