IPL row: Tharoor meets Pranab, Antony again

The meeting lasted 30 minutes. Tharoor refused to comment on what they discussed.

This is his second meeting with Mukherjee and Antony in less than a day. He met the Congress leaders Wednesday night to discuss the controversy.

IPL commissioner Lalit Modi on Sunday alleged that Tharoor told him not to reveal the ownership pattern of the IPL Kochi franchise. Sunanda Pushkar, a friend of the minister, is linked to Rendezvous Sports World, which is part of a consortium that won the Kochi franchise.

Tharoor has denied the allegation and said he was simply trying to help Kerala get a IPL team.

But the issue did not find a mention in both houses of parliament that witnessed repeated adjournments over the killing of 76 security personnel by Maoists in Chhattisgarh.
