New Delhi:Former Supreme Court Chief Justice K N Singh, who was appointed one of the observers for the Cricket Board's meeting to elect its President, has said that Rajasthan Cricket Association has borne his expenses for travel to Kolkata, venue of the meeting, and his accommodation there.

"All my expenses were borne by RCA because those who have knowledge about legal proceedings know that the party which files the petition only bears the expenses. Why would BCCI bear my expenses.

BCCI was opposing RCA's petition. There is nothing fishy in it," Justice Singh told Aaj Tak reacting to Board president Ranbir Singh Mahendra and his predecessor Jagmohan Dalmiya raising question on the issue.

On Friday last Mahendra and Dalmiya had sought to know as to who bore the travel and accomodation expenses of the observer who reached Kolkata soon after their appointment by the Kolkata high court.

"They are making a mountain out of a molehill," he added.Referring to Mahendra's remark that he was unware of the appointment of the observer's Justice Singh said, "I won't say he is lying but he is wrong."

"When I reached meeting venue he (Mahendra) came to know of it. The lawyer also said that as soon as the court ordered appointment of observer a copy of it was sent to Mahendra."
