April 20, 2010 19:31 IST

Under-fire IPL commissioner Lalit Modi parried questions about his impending resignation, saying the matter will be discussed and a unanimous decision taken at the upcoming Governing Council meeting on April 26.

"I think all of you have the same question. On April 26 we have the Governing Council. We will meet there and discuss all these allegations that are coming out," Modi told reporters on arrival from Dubai, on Tuesday, where he attended the ICC's Executive Board meeting.

Although there is intense speculation that he will step down after the final of the IPL on Sunday, he refused to dwell on the subject.

 "There is no point discussing it. BCCI president Shashank Manohar and Sharad Pawar had already met this morning. They are all united in the same area. Decision will be taken unanimously by the Governing Council," he said.

"I will present all the facts against all the allegations. There is nothing to worry about and we will carry on," the beleaguered administrator added.
