Former IPL commissioner, Lalit Modi has once again taken a dig at former BCCI chief N Srinivasan and former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni by sharing the latter’s contract details as an Indian Cement employee. The purported contract states finer details of the offer made to the former CSK captain who is now part of the IPL franchise Rising Pune Supergiant.
Taking to Twitter, Modi wrote: “It seems only in #india #contempt after contempt continues by the #old #guards of @bcci- How? My best guess is #northblock.”
The offer letter claims MS Dhoni was offered the post of Vice President (Marketing) at the company’s corporate office in Chennai with effect from July 2012. The contract reveals that Dhoni was appointed as a Grade IV officer on a basic pay of Rs 43,000 per month. Along with this, the former captain was also entitled to a Fixed Dearness Allowance of Rs 21,970 per month.
The allowances available for Dhoni, the contract says, were Enhanced HRA of Rs. 20,400 while stationed in Chennai; Special HRA of Rs. 8,400 per month if in Chennai and Rs. 8,000/month if outside; Special Allowance of Rs.60,000 per month and finally Education/Newspaper Expenses of Rs. 175 per month.
Dhoni’s relation with Srinivasan has often been questioned in various section with former India selector Mohinder Amarnath even revealing that Srinivasan did not allow the selectors to sack Dhoni as skipper even after India lost 8 Test matches in a row on foreign soil.
