BCCI’s president-in-exile N. Srinivasan dropped in to meet Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in New Delhi on Monday.
Although details of their meeting were not known, the Tamil Nadu strongman was at the finance ministry office during the second half where he was with Mr. Jaitley for about half-an-hour.
Mr. Srinivasan was unavailable for comments about what transpired during the meeting with one of the senior-most ministers in the Narendra Modi government.
While he relinquished his BCCI vice-president’s post due to political commitments, Mr. Jaitley is one of the respected voices in BCCI and was also the president of the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association sometime back.
He was also the head of BCCI’s disciplinary committee, which imposed life bans on cricketers S. Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan for their alleged role in spot-fixing during the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League.
