Kodaikanal, May 25: Far from the frenzy over the IPL6 controversy, the man in the centre of the storm, BCCI chief and Chennai Super Kings owner N. Srinivasan has ruled out his resignation from the top post of the cricket body.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror newspaper, Srinivasan, who is presently on family holiday in Kodaikanal, said: "There is no controversy . As for my resignation, why, there is no need. I will not resign."
"I am a straight-forward person and my dealings are the same.
"I have no idea what my son-in-law has been up to.
"I do not know if he has done anything wrong. I do not know anything about the betting business.
"I don't go watch any match, not even those involving my team Chennai Super Kings.
"Has anyone ever seen me at a match?" he asked.
Srinivasan said he will however make it a point to attend the IPL final at Kolkata this Sunday.
Srinivasan was saying this hours after his son-in-law Meiyappan left for Mumbai, where he was put under arrest after interrogation.
On Meiyappan, he said: " He will be suitably dealt with. If anyone has done anything wrong, I will not spare them."
Srinivasan asserted he had the support of IPL chief Rajiv Shukla.
"He (Shukla) called me moments ago reposing faith in me. He told me there was no need to resign. "
Asked what he would do if he was asked to sped down in the larger interest of BCCI, Srinivasan said; " I have already told you, if anyone asks me to step down, I will simply say no. Now you must let me get on with my evening walk. "
