"Today, these employees of India Cements Ltd. stand tarnished in the eyes of the public and the society at the large as if they were unceremoniously thrown out by the - court upon being found guilty of conspiring against the interest of the BCCI, Srinivasan said in his application."
New Delhi, April 15 - N. Srinivasan, who had sidestepped as the BCCI head, making room for the appointment of legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar as the Indian cricketing body's interim president tasked with the conduct of the IPL-7, Tuesday moved the apex court seeking his restoration.

Srinivasan has contested the appointment of Gavaskar as interim president, saying that there was nothing in the Board for Control of Cricket in India's - rules that envisages such a position.

Seeking the reconsideration of apex court's March 28 order, Srinivasan, in his application, said: I wish to resume my elected office. My term ends with September 2014 and I should be allowed to complete my tenure.

Srinivasan, who is under a cloud over allegations of betting by his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and other allegations of conflict of interest, in his application, said: Memorandum of Rules and Regulations of the BCCI do not contemplate an interim president.

I am not under any inquiry or probe and hence, there is absolutely no reason for me to be kept away from my office, he argued.

Srinivasan, in his application, said that even though March 28 order passed by the apex court bench of Justice A.K. Patnaik and Justice Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla had said that its interim order was restricted to BCCI activities only but the vested interests behind the petitioner - have charged me with violating this court's order by attending the ICC meetings in Dubai last week.

Srinivasan also said that Justice - Mukul Mudgal Committee report saying that Meiyappan was a mere cricket enthusiast was incorrect as he was the public face of the Chennai Super Kings.

Addressing the apex court order barring all the staffers of India Cement from operating in the BCCI, Srinivasan defended these employees, saying that they had worked under various officer bearers starting with Lalit K.Modi, Shrad Pawar and others.

These persons have been asked to leave the BCCI for absolutely for no fault of their making, without giving them, or for that matter, me an opportunity to explain the allegations.

Today, these employees of India Cements Ltd. stand tarnished in the eyes of the public and the society at the large as if they were unceremoniously thrown out by the - court upon being found guilty of conspiring against the interest of the BCCI, Srinivasan said in his application.

Srinivasan is chairman of the India Cements which holds the franchise of Chennai Super Kings. Meiyappan was the team principal.
