Modi to move court against IPL meeting

IPL chairman Lalit Modi is all set to move court for an injunction on the IPL governing council meeting scheduled to be held on Monday.

The embattled Modi was tonight said to be considering moving the Bombay High Court seeking an injunction against the April 26 meeting where Governing Council member M A K Pataudi says he would be ousted if he keeps away. Reports say renowned lawyers Ram Jethmalani and Harish Salve will represent Modi.

Modi had questioned the legality of the meeting on April 26 saying that he alone had the power to convene such a meeting by virtue of being the IPL chairman.

Modi wanted the meeting to be convened on May 1.

BCCI President Shashank Manohar shed his reticence to attack Modi who had threatened to reveal details of franchise ownership. He also rejected Modi's contention on the meeting and said it would go ahead as scheduled.

He dismissed Modi's claim of BCCI secretary N Srinivasan having a conflict of interest in owning Chennai franchisee.

"Mr Srinivasan was a declared bidder. If Modi and his relatives had a share in any of the franchises, he ought to have declared it at the meeting. I was not a member of the Governing Council then. He ought to have told every body," the BCCI President said.

Manohar said that it was the then BCCI President Sharad Pawar who had given Srinivasan permission to bid. It was India Cements, a company which bid and was accepted by the general body.

The IPL Governing Council meeting on Monday is expected to discuss the current controversy surrounding the league and the possibility of his removal from the post is also not ruled out.
