New Delhi, May 29: BCCI chief N Srinivasan on Wednesday said that Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla did not ask for his resignation and only said that he should remain dissociated from the investigative procedure into the ongoing fixing scandal. He said Shukla reiterated what he had said during a press conference held in Kolkata after the IPL final. Srinivasan said he had nothing to do with the probe as it was an independent procedure held under independent judges.
"I saw Shukla's latest interview and it is very clear that he has said that I should disassociate with the procedure. In Kolkata, I said the same. This is what Shukla said. He has reiterated what I said in Kolkata. The commission is independent - there are two independent judges and the secretary of the Board. We will just await that result. I have nothing else to say. Why don't you guys relax," the BCCI chief said.
Srinivasan asked the media not to jump the gun and asked it to 'relax'.
Shukla and BCCI Vice-President Arun Jaitley had earlier said that Srinivasan should stay away from the probe.
The chorus for Srinivasan's ouster has been growing strong with the government also asking for his resignation on Wednesday.
