"The battle began on April 25, 2010 by me against these crooks [Rajiv Shukla and Anurag Thakur] in BCCI and finally the honourable Supreme Court of India had to step in to cleanup the stark rapping of an organisation and sport. I made the BCCI $7.8 billion in four years, that's what they are lining there pockets with," Modi wrote on his Instagram account.
The 50-year-old Indian businessman, who is exiled in London, post getting a life ban by the BCCI before running the IPL until 2010, also posted a series of tweets slamming the present BCCI officials and also seconded Justice Markandey Katju's recent remarks: "Lodha should get BCCI officials tied naked to a pole & given 100 lashes each on their behinds," the former Supreme Court CJI tweeted.
