Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

ON BCCI AND IPL FRAN­CHISES

“We had ex­pected the BCCI and the teams to come for­ward and vol­un­tar­ily sug­gest shift­ing the matches out. How­ever, de­spite be­ing granted sev­eral chances by the court, the re­spon­dents [BCCI and fran­chises] un­for­tu­nately did not take any such de­ci­sion. This leaves us with no choice but to in­ter­fere.”

ON STATE GOVERN­MENT

“On one hand the state govern­ment filed an af­fi­davit in court stat­ing that it had no qualms if the IPL was shifted out of Ma­ha­rash­tra. How­ever, on the other hand, it acts as a mute spec­ta­tor… It is ap­par­ent that de­spite its stand in the af­fi­davit, the state govern­ment does not want the matches to be shifted out.”
