Will request PM to allow Sourav to run for ICC chairman's post: Mamata
 
Kolkata: Describing Sourav Ganguly as "pride of the nation", West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said she will request Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow the outgoing BCCI president to run for the International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman's post.

"Sourav Ganguly is not only the pride of Bengal but also of the entire nation. He has led the cricket team and BCCI with the utmost dedication and responsibility, " Banerjee told mediapersons at the NSCBI Airport before leaving for North Bengal. "The Supreme Court had given a three-year extension to both Sourav Ganguly and Amit Shah’s son, Jay Shah, but for reasons not yet known, Jay Shah is still continuing as the BCCI Secretary while Sourav Ganguly has been removed from the position," she said.

The former Indian captain is set to be replaced by1983 World Cup winning team member Roger Binny for the top slot of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday.

Banerjee said she did not have any problem with Jay Shah continuing as BCCI secretary, but regretted that injustice has been done to Ganguly."We don’t have any problem with Jay Shah continuing at the BCCI. He is not a BJP member. If he does good work, I will support him, but if he doesn’t, we will question him, " Banerjee stated.

"Our grievance is why Sourav Ganguly was removed from BCCI. We want to know on whose orders it was done. We believe that injustice has been done to Ganguly, " she said. Banerjee said Ganguly should be compensated by allowing him to run for the ICC chairman election.
