A defiant BCCI President N Srinivasan today rejected demands for his resignation in the wake of the arrest of his son-in-law and CSK team owner Gurunath Meiyappan on charges of betting.
"I have done no wrong, I have no intention to resign. I can't be bulldozed or railroaded into resigning. Some sources are trying to put pressure now...There is no question of it," he told reporters on his arrival in Mumbai.
He said the BCCI will strictly follow all its rules. Law will take its course, he added in a brief interaction with journalists at the airport.
Ever since news broke out about Gurunath being involved in betting on IPL matches in association with actor Vindu Dara Singh and other bookies, there has been a clamour that Srinivasan should step down.
The chorus intensified after the midnight arrest of his son-in-law by Mumbai Police, which said that he was arrested after they came to the conclusion that Gurunath was involved in the offence of betting.
