Clarion India

MUMBAI – Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday said cricket had been moved from Mumbai, which was the nation’s traditional powerhouse in the game, to Ahmedabad in Gujarat as the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party wanted to hold a “political event”, reported PTI.

Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, which is the world’s largest cricket stadium with a capacity of 1.32 lakh, hosted the final of the World Cup between India and Australia.

“The World Cup (final) is happening in Ahmedabad. Earlier, Mumbai was the Mecca of cricket. All such events were organised in Delhi, Mumbai or at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Entire cricket was moved from Mumbai to Ahmedabad because they (BJP) want to a do political event,” Raut said.

In its pursuit of political gains, the BJP will not spare even cricket, Raut said.
