Lalit Modi Hits Back After Rajasthan Cricket Association Sacks Him as President

Lalit Modi was elected Rajasthan Cricket Association president when he won a court-supervised election in December last year. 29 out of 33 units voted in his favour. On Saturday, 23 units voted him out. His lawyer claims this is being done by BCCI's president-in-exile N. Srinivasan.

Rajasthan Cricket Association has removed former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi as its president in a bid to end its stand-off with BCCI.

The resolution to impeach Modi was passed after 23 of the 33 districts voted against the former BCCI vice-president. Vice-president Amin Pathan will take over as acting president. Three of Modi's supporters have also been removed.

Modi has hit back at his removal, saying the meeting was illegal because a 21-day mandatory notice period was not given. He has also 'suspended' acting president Pathan. Modi has alleged that 23 units on Saturday, had in fact, voted for him and not against. He also claims to enjoy the confidence of the RCA. (Also read: Lalit Modi's full statement)
