AS per reports in TOI, Shetty has written two back to back emails to the CoA. The first was regarding an enquiry regarding the progress on the draft constitution. The second was regarding refraining the eminent judges from partcipating in the post-match presentation ceremony, besides batting for the distribution of IPL tickets public on the MCA's website.

"Dear Sirs, it's sad that you were not briefed properly about the presentation function post-IPL matches. For eminent retired judges like you to merely stand there during presentation was really awkward. I wish somebody had given you an idea of the same. The CoA whether BCCI or at DDCA or HCA politely refused the offer," Shetty says in the email.

"As per the decision of the General Body, the distribution of tickets in the IPL are displayed on the website of MCA, however this time, even after two weeks from the last game, the information is not put up. Please advise the concerned people to put up the chart on the website, match-wise," Shetty concluded. 

Shetty has also received back up for his stand from former managing committee member Ravi Mandrekar, who represents Gaud Saraswat cricket club in the MCA who supports the former's take on the sale of IPL tickets.  The former managing committee member also e CoA to put up the distribution of IPL tickets on the association's website, besides preparing an amended draft constitution as per the Lodha reforms.
