This looks even more embarrassing that the BCCI seems to have overpowered the Supreme Court, as it was under the directive of the SC that the election results were declared yesterday. Bindra said, ''An observer appointed by SC had cleared Lalit Modi's candidature. How can RCA be penalised for electing him as President?''
Adding fuel to the speculation, Bindra also feels that Srinivasan, the suspended president of the BCCI is still calling the shots within the organisation. It is not only Bindra, but also another former BCCI chief, Sharad Pawar who considers BCCI's decision harsh.
RCA are in no mood to allow the BCCI work as per their whims and fancies, as they have decided to fight the board's decision in the court. Ali further added that RCA has a very good chance in the court as well, where the Supreme Court can come up with a stay order, much to the relief of RCA.
One has to understand that the matter has just started and it would take some time to come to any conclusion for the SC as well. But, it is also upon the discretion of the SC as well. ''Article 142 gives the Supreme Court of India extraordinary powers. They can do anything. It is upto them,'' said Ali.
