Shukla was speaking after a meeting with Arun Jaitley, a BCCI vice-president and an influential member in the Board. "He is an elected president and we have suggested that he should stay away till the probe is over.

sources said that all BCCI member think that Srinivasan should step aside. Yesterday while talking to the Jyotiraditya Scindia, a member of the Board for Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and of its disciplinary committee, said board president N Srinivasan must step down following the arrest of his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan on charges of betting. "Let me say this that I am not assuming or saying that anyone is guilty. But considering the environment that is around cricket today, considering the fact that we do need to cleanse the sport in every single meaning of the word, I do believe that it would be in the fitness of things if Mr. Srinivasan did step aside until this matter reached a conclusive end in terms of an inquiry," Scindia said. Scindia further said : "If he and his family members, or rather his son-in-law, is absolved then surely he can come back.
