New Delhi: Expressing the government's desire to bring BCCI under the ambit of the RTI Act, Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today reiterated the centre's stance following the Supreme Court ruling that the private cricketing body performs a public function and is amenable to judicial law and review.

"This is a public body as observed by the honourable Supreme Court so definitely it is accountable to make their day to day activity more transparent to the people," Sonowal said on the sidelines of an event organised for the youth of BRICS nations.

The court, while reading out the judgement in the IPL spot-fixing case, had said that the "BCCI does discharge several important public functions which make it amenable to the writ jurisdiction of the High Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India".

Asked about the idea of organising a BRICS sports games on the lines of South Asian Games, Sonwal said: "Everything is possible. We (BRICS countries) have to put a thought to how we can move together. This area can be definitely be explored".
