Spot-fixing scandal: Cong favours self-regulation

New Delhi: Amid demands of a court monitored SIT probe into the affairs of IPL, Congress today favoured self-regulation in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal.

It steered clear of the issue of resignation of BCCI chief N Srinivasan following reports of alleged involvement of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan in the spot-fixing scandal. Party spokesperson Renuka Chowdhury feigned ignorance of matters concerning cricket. She said she has no opinion on the issue of SIT probe into the IPL.

Advocating self-regulation, she suggested that if there are any "aberrations", agencies concerned should analyse them and find solution. "I have no information on this. It has not seized my attention," she said when asked whether Srinivasan should quit on moral grounds.

She was ambivalent on questions whether the BCCI should be brought under the Right to Information Act.
