L K advani: The govt should probe all aspects of IPL bidding

Speaking at a function here on Saturday, Advani also asked for a thorough probe into all aspects of IPL bidding and also investigate whether foreign funds were involved in it.
“The prime minister must drop Tharoor from the council of ministers because of gross impropriety unbecoming of the office he is occupying,” Advani said. It also needs to be probed whether Tharoor is also guilty of abusing his office to secure pecuniary advantage for himself or “for some other person.”

“The government should conduct a thorough probe into all aspects of the IPL bidding and ensure that all transactions in this popular tournament remain above board. No wrong-doer must be spared,” Advani said.

The other demands of Advani include a look at the tax haven accounts of bidders and others associated with the IPL.

“The prime minister must share with the country the outcome of his government’s negotiations with countries in whose banks Indian wealth is known to be stashed away,” Advani said. The weaknesses in “our current economic system have made it possible for dishonest and unscrupulous people to amass huge wealth by bending and flouting the laws of the land,” he said.

“News about the IPL raises suspicions that many of the bidders have been registered in obscure tax havens abroad. It is precisely the secret or benami accounts in these tax havens that have been used for stashing away lakhs of crores of Indian money abroad,” Advani insisted.
