Modi threatens to pull IPL out of India
Advertisement
#1
New Delhi: Security issues and clashing dates with elections may force a cancellation of season II of the Indian Premier League. But Lalit Modi remains defiant. He has written to the franchises saying that the IPL matches will go ahead as per schedule.

Modi would address a media conference after a crucial meeting with the IPL board later on Friday.

CNN-IBN has learnt that the IPL has offers from the UAE, English counties and other countries to host the event and Modi is now trying to threaten the government with the possibility of moving overseas if not allowed to hold the event as per schedule.

The Indian Government has demanded rescheduling of the IPL as the dates clash with the general elections. Various state governments, too, have refused to provide security for the event, even after the IPL board submitted a revised schedule.

Sources from the Government say that the final decision on the IPL's security will be taken next week. But so far the response on security from state police has not been positive.
