New Delhi: Training his guns at the BCCI for handing out clean chits in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal, cricketer-turned-politician Kirti Azad today asked if the Indian Cricket Board considers itself above the law.
Azad's comments came after the BCCI's two-member probe panel cleared Chennai Super Kings Team Principle Gurunath Meiyappan, who is the son-in-law of Board President N Srinivasan, Rajasthan Royals franchise and its co-owner Raj Kundra in the scam that rocked the IPL this year.
"I don't blame (BCCI acting chief) Jagmohan Dalmiya or Srinivasan for this. The politicians are hell bent on making BCCI the next Indian Olympic Association. We have seen what happened to IOA due to political interference and now the same is happening with BCCI," Azad told 'PTI-Bhasha'.
