Soon after reports began filtering in of a Supreme Court appointed panel of judges indicting N. Srinivasan’s son-in-law, Gurunath Meiyappan, on committing illegal activities as a Principal of the Chennai Super Kings, N. Srinivasan reportedly reached out to the Congress to ensure his son-in-law gets the same level of protection as the nation’s official son-in-law.
In a letter to Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, Mr. Srinivasan is reported to have written, “I request that all charges against my son-in-law be dropped in the same manner as Mr. Vadra. After all, my son-in-law is also merely a private citizen and an honest businessman to boot, with just a passing interest in cricket.”
The letter also went on to demand the suspension of the panel of judges and filing of multiple cases against them to harass them. “Just like Ashok Khemka, these vigilante judges should be brought to book!” the letter continues. “Please ensure that multiple FIRs, PILs, etc. are filed against them in silly or fabricated cases so that they dare not touch another influential son-in-law again!”
“After all, boys will be boys,” the letter concluded.
