IPL told to revise its schedule again
Advertisement
#1
New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs has yet again asked organisers to draw a fresh schedule for the second season of the Indian Premier League after holding a high level meeting on Friday.

Playing the role of third umpire when it comes to security at the high profile league, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram held the meeting with Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta, National Security Advisor M K Narayanan, IB chief, RAW chief, and senior officials from the ministry to decide on providing Central security forces for the matches.

The Minister will hold a press conference later Friday.

Meanwhile, IPL chairman Lalit Modi told CNN-IBN that he has already made a revised schedule to meet the Home Minstry's requirements, and that the dates will be announced soon. He also said the tournament will start as scheduled on April 10.

With state police seeking Central forces to provide security for the matches, the Ministry was expected to review if it's feasible for the Centre to provide security for the matches while the election process will be going on.

Earlier, the state governments had said that matches should only go ahead if paramilitary forces are provided, or if they can use the forces deployed for election duty.

DGPs of seven states were on a video call with the Home Ministry to discuss the security issue.

Without the ministry's nod, it seems unlikely that the biggest sports and entertainment show in Asia will take off this year.

Most host states expressed their inability in providing adequate security to the matches during election process despite the changes in the original IPL schedule.
