Jaipur: Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi's lawyer Mehmood Abdi on Tuesday alleged that N Srinivasan was still calling the shots in the BCCI and interim chiefs Sunil Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav were "toeing his line". (Lalit Modi Elected RCA President)
Talking to media after Modi was named Rajasthan Cricket Association president, Abdi said that the BCCI has no legal right to suspend RCA because it was governed by the Sports Act of the state.
"We had thought that better sense would prevail in BCCI after appointing of Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav by the apex court of India who had also asked N Srinivasan to keep away from the affairs of BCCI till the enquiry commission submits its findings. But the BCCI is working in same revengeful manner against former IPL commissioner Lalit as before and that is why Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav are toeing line of Srinivasan," said Abdi.
