Stalemate over Indo-Pak T20 WC in Dharamshala continues
Uncertanity over the marque Twenty20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan at Dharamshala continues even after a meeting between BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur and Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.
Singh reportedly told the BCCI Secretary to sort out the matter with the families of martyrs and ex-servicemen in Kangra, who are up in arms against the March 19 match and consider it as an “insult” to the martyrs who lost their lives in Pathankot airbase attack.
“The government respects the feelings of families of martyrs and ex-servicemen and cannot resort to use of force against them,” CM was reported to have told Thakur. However, Thakur told the CM that the match was fixed long ago and in case it was cancelled, it would not be in the interest of the state and pleaded for hosting it as scheduled.
