Srinivasan does not keep his commitments: Subrata Roy


Srinivasan does not keep on his commitments Subrata RoyKOLKATA: Blaming N Srinivasan for the withdrawal of his company’s sponsorship of the Indian cricket team, Sahara chief Subrata Roy today said the BCCI president “does not keep on his commitments”.

“We had a very good association with the BCCI in the past and had friendly relation with it. We used to work together.

“But the present president (Srinivasan) has a different mindset and does not keep on his commitments… Has a lot of false ego. So we are not keen on continuing with the relationship,” Roy said reporters here.

It had withdrawn its franchise Pune Warriors from the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to differences with the board.

Roy also attacked Srinivasan over IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) former team principal and son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan for his alleged involvement in betting and fixing.

“The case is on his team but nothing has happened. Had the principal of any other team been involved in something, that team would have been scrapped by now. But that is not happening. We don’t want to work in that environment,” said Roy.

The company’s sponsorship of the Indian cricket team is officially expiring in December.

To a query, he said, “I have no plans to continue with the BCCI sponsorship. But old people and some players are saying to continue,” he said.–PTI
