Ramiz Raja spoke to fans in an hour-long online session on Monday, only days after he was fired as the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and he was quite critical of the current administration. Along with criticizing the new PCB director, Najam Sethi, he also made scathing comments about the mistreatment he endured the morning following the announcement.
In a video available on his YouTube channel, Raja said: “Aisa inhone hamla kiya cricket board mein aake. Mera saman bhi nahi lene diya inlogo ne. Subah yeh 9 baje, 17 bande dhandate fir rahe they cricket board mein. Jaise ki koi FIA ka chapa par gaya." (They way they attacked the cricket board. They didnt even let me take my stuff. Early morning at 9 around 17 guys stormed at the office, which felt as if the Federal Investigation Agency of Pakistan has raided the office).

Rajas inflammatory remarks have been noted by the PCB, which has also clarified the situation of his being unable to pick up his office belongings. Salman Naseer, the chief operational officer of PCB, verified in a tweet sent at midnight that he had recovered all of his possessions and that they were all held in a secure location under PCB control. The customary turning over the procedure will include the return of his things.
