ISLAMABAD - Major (R) Nadeem Sudle termed Najam Sethi's removal as his victory towards helping Pakistan cricket from getting rid from anti-cricket elements.
He expressed these views during an exclusive interview with The Nation on Sunday. He said he believed in rule of law. “I would wait and watch Zaka Ashraf's next moves. If he worked for the betterment of cricket and takes positive decisions, I would not only support him but also lend him every possible help, but if he continues with his old policies, then the doors are open for me to fight long hard legal battle against him.”
He said it was the moral duty of Zaka to immediately conduct elections of regions. He alleged that Tafazul Riavi was the main culprit and played a very dirty role. “Now the board has got rid of him, things would head in right direction. Sethi-led Interim Committee suspended PCB Board of Governors and general council using article 41, which was highly regrettable. Now Islamabad High Court has restored Zaka Ashraf and the Board of Governors and general council also stands at the same position that was in May, before the dismissal of Zaka.”
He said his two petitions against Sethi were already pending in Islamabad High Court regarding non-professionalism, conflict of interest being a journalist and working for safeguarding interests of one particular media group, where he is employed and awarded them media rights and above all contempt of court petition was also pending against him as he did not comply with the court orders of conducting elections in regions without any delay.
“I will pursue cases against Sehi and would ensure justice prevailed. I would not sit back and watch people destroy Pakistan cricket. As a cricketer myself, it is my bonafide right to work for the right cause and would continue to do so in future too,” Nadeem concluded.
