I will not quit: Modi

New Delhi, April, 24 : A defiant Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi Saturday said he will not quit despite some people "pressurising" him to resign.

Modi, in the eye of a storm following his comments on the Kochi franchise which resulted in the resignation of junior foreign minister Shashi Tharoor, said he is not a quitter and that the truth will soon appear.

"People pressurising me to resign -- I can tell you, (it) will not happen. Let them remove me then," Modi tweeted. "What we have done has been there for all of you to see for the past 4 years. No one can take that away."

"I am not the type to quit. Have faith. Did not create this to just walk away - because xyz says what they feel like."

Modi also lashed out at media for carrying "baseless stories" about IPL.

"Truth will prevail soon. Trial by media and no chance to present the facts is like the wild west. Wait and the facts will be delivered," he said.

"Media putting stories without verification, goes to show how media can misuse their power. Don't get influenced by all these baseless stories."

Amid all the ruckus, Modi went on to give the details of the IPL closing ceremony ahead of the final Sunday.

"Watch A. R. Rehman conduct the closing ceremony tomorrow. Lata Mangeshkar will honour us with a live performance."
