Lalit Modi discusses why he first decided to leave India.

The cricket administrator-turned-businessman also remarked that the BCCI. It did not have much money in the bank when he started. But by the time he left. The national cricket body had grown to be a multibillion dollar company.

“Why I left India is an on going issue. But I did not have a choice. 1 u get tried and hanged before even the proceedings begin in our country by the media. I had 24/7 over 200 journos. Who would stir things. There is no liable laws in our country. So they just say what they want or what the ruling govt directs them too. 2. Govt was not after me. They wanted someone else. And we’re twisting and threatening me to play ball or else face consequences. I decided I will never be able to even get to court. The way things were. Over and above the Fixing Mafia. Lastly the jealousy in BCCI. SO IT WAS PRUDENT TO LEAVE and fight from outside. And I did. I to date after 15 years have 0 Conviction in any court.He said.
“As I have done nothing wrong. And my lawyers appeared for years and years. We gave all evidence. You know what happened post. Fixing scandal, mafia, lodha commission, everyone wanting a piece of bcci. IPL. Well they have it. I said DAY I. – I will create a product world class – recession proof. Guess what. It’s the only thing that is exactly that. Unites the country, brings joys to millions and has given so many millions of people livelihood. And. ITS INDIA’s MOST VALUABLE ASSETT. WORTH OVER 50 billion US dollars. Created with 1 rupee.”He added.
