I will not resign: Lalit Modi

Indian Premier League (IPL) Commissioner Lalit Modi on Saturday reportedly twitted that he won’t resign from his post.

“People are pressurising me to resign. I can tell you that will not happen. Let the people remove me, I will not resign on my own,” twitted Modi.

“I am not a quitter, did not create this just to walk away. People cannot take away what we have done in four years,” he added.

Modi has further twitted that people should not be influenced by baseless stories and the truth would come out soon.

“Had no chance to present the facts, it is like the Wild West. Wait and the facts will be delivered to the world,” said Modi.

Meanwhile, it was decided in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) informal meeting that took place at its headquarters on Saturday that a final decision on Modi would be taken at the IPL Governing Council meeting on April 26.

Earlier on Saturday morning, the BCCI rejected Modi”s plea to defer the Governing Council meeting by five days, saying it will go ahead as per schedule.

The BCCI has already informed Modi that it would not change the date of the meeting as allegations of financial irregularities and the entire controversies related to IPL were far too serious to differ the meeting any further.

According to sources, the BCCI would go ahead with the scheduled meeting even if Modi decides to skip it.

On Friday, Modi had sought five days time to prepare himself for the Governing Council meeting, which is expected to take a hardstand and even press for his removal.

“I need to prepare the documents to support my replies to all the questions. I have worked for you (BCCI) for five long years without taking any money, consider giving me just five days for the documents,” Modi had said.

The ”Anti-Modi” mood within the BCCI is quite clear with the entire top brass and most of the Governing Council member boycotting the award function in Mumbai last night.

Meanwhile, reportedly, the BCCI officials are also planning to skip the IPL final on Sunday. (ANI)
