NEW DELHI: BCCI Chief Shashank Manohar claimed that we will provide foolproof security to Pakistani cricket team.
He talked on a telephone call with PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan and assured him that BCCI will make proper security arrangements for the Pakistani team.
Indo-Pak T20 cricket match will be played in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh on March 19.
The Himachal Pradesh CM Vibharda Singh wrote a letter to Narendra Modi and claimed that we cannot provide security to Pakistani team and match should be cancelled.
He said in the letter “Himachal Pradesh is the land of courageous soldiers and two martyrs of the terror attack in Pathankot were from this area and a memorial is located just a few meters away from the cricket stadium where the match is to be played.”
Senior BJP leader Shanta Kumar also claimed that the T20 World Cup match between Pakistan and India should be cancelled in respect of the Pahankot attack.
BJP MP in Lok Sabha Anurag Thakur claimed that Congress government is playing politics in the state.
He said “The venues of the World Cup matches were decided one year ago, the allotment of matches was decided six months ago. People all over have made bookings and it is not fair to give such statements at the last minute.”
PCB Chairman claimed that I was promised for foolproof security and now its Indian government’s responsibility as Pakistan government has given clearance on the assurance by their Indian counterparts.
