New Delhi, June 1 (ANI): Amid indications that more senior functionaries would resign to mount pressure on BCCI President N. Srinivasan to step down in the wake of IPL spot-fixing scandal, Indian cricket board's vice-president Arun Jaitley on Saturday said that there will be some significant developments today.
"Wait for a day and you will hear something significant today," he told mediapersons outside his residence here.
Two top BCCI officials BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale and Treasurer Ajay Shirke have tendered their resignations in the wake of spot-fixing scandal.
Jagdale after stepping down from his post yesterday said that he was 'deeply hurt' by the recent revelations of spot-fixing in the country.
"I was deeply hurt by the latest developments that took place in Indian cricket. I was hurt just in a way millions of cricket fans have been hurt since I as a former player am attached to the game for so long. Some changes must be done to restore the early status of game in the country," he told the media in Indore.
Jagdale also said he would no longer be a part of the three-member inquiry commission set up by the BCCI to go into allegations against Srinivasan's son-in-low Gurunath Meiyappan, who was arrested on charges of betting in IPL, and Rajasthan Royals franchise.
The BCCI has called an emergency meeting on June 8.
The chorus for Srinivasan's ouster as BCCI President has grown louder with BCCI heavyweights appearing to be firm his resignation. Union Minister and former BCCI boss Sharad Pawar has also joined in the attack on him.
The Sports Ministry has also sought to put pressure on Srinivasan, and said that he should tender his resignation on moral grounds, pending the outcome of the inquiry.
Despite suggestions from BCCI heavyweights- Rajeev Shukla and Arun Jaitley-that he should disassociate himself from the procedures of the inquiry commission investigating the spot-fixing scandal, Srinivasan has so far showed no signs of relenting under pressure.
A Mumbai Court yesterday extended the police custody of actor Vindoo Dara Singh and BCCI President N. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan till June 3.
The Mumbai Crime Brach yesterday recorded the statement of Chennai hotelier Vikram Agarwal, a friend of Meiyappan. (ANI)
