Pune:Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Chairperson Dnyaneshwar Agashe would move Madras High Court to challenge former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya's decision to not allow him to vote during the election for the post of BCCI President on September 29.

"I have been advised by my lawyers to file a writ petition in Madras High Court against denial of my right to vote in the election for the BCCI President's post held in Kolkata," Agashe told PTI here today.

He said that his lawyers would file the writ petition in Chennai either today or tomorrow.

Asked why has he decided to move the Madras High Court, Agashe said this was because the high court there on September 29 had set aside a single judge's order appointing retired Supreme Court judge S Mohan to conduct the BCCI election.

Agashe, on his arrival from Kolkata on October one, had said that the MCA would file a writ petition in Kolkata High Court because "I as its representative was prevented from voting in Kolkata for the election for the BCCI president's post."

A day earlier, the MCA Secretary Anant Mate said the Association had planned to approach the Bombay High Court for the 'injustice' meted out to Agashe and the MCA.
