SRINAGAR: Union Minister Farooq Abdullah today put his weight behind N Srinivasan, saying the BCCI president is a ‘man of honour’ and will conform to the Supreme Court observations about stepping down.
N Srinivasan, who had a cataract surgery today, continued to remain silent on the Supreme Court observation that he should step down for a fair probe into IPL fixing scandal.
Abdullah, who is also the president of Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association, said Srinivasan will prove his innocence.
“He (Srinivasan) is a man of honur. He will conform to what the Supreme Court wants him to do and he will prove that he has done no wrong,” Abdullah told reporters after launching his Lok Sabha election campaign from Budgam district.
Asked why the beleagured BCCI president has not stepped down so far, Abdullah said the Supreme Court has given him two days for doing it.
“They (SC) have given him two days. So wait till the two days are over,” he added.
Asked if he would suggest Srinivasan to step down, Abdullah said he cannot “urge him to do anything. It is upto him.”
