Lalit Modi was defiant on Tuesday and said that there was no chance that he will quit from his post of the chairman of the IPL. Modi also added that he will present his case to the Governing Council, who will then decide his future.
The Governing Council meeting is planned for the 26th of April, one day after the final of the IPL and for Modi to be sacked as the chairman of the IPL, there is a need for a 2/3rd majority of votes.
Modi was in Dubai to attend an ICC meeting yesterday and the BCCI President Shashank Manohar met up with Sharad Pawar to discuss the issue. It was apparent that Pawar was Modi’s last support, and even he was convinced into asking Modi to give his resignation.
Modi was accused of allegedly having a proxy stake in various franchises apart from corruption charges. The Income Tax department is already investigating these claims.
