Allegations against Modi to be discussed in BCCI meet

The working committee meeting would be preceded by the Indian Premier League's Governing Council meeting to be held just after the event ends on April 25. "All the allegations against Modi and other issues would be discussed in the Governing Council. The date would be announced soon," BCCI's Media and Finance Committee chairman Rajiv Shukla told reporters here.

"Working Committee meeting has been postponed because all things have to be discussed in the Governing Council meeting first. There is no point in having a Working Committee meeting before that," he added. Asked about reports that Modi's wings are set to be clipped after his public spat with the now former Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor, Shukla said it was media speculation.

Shukla also refused to comment on allegations of corruption against Modi, who has been accused of helping his friends and family buy teams in the IPL. "We are not aware of anything. We are reading all this in media reports. Even the BCCI President Shashank Manohar is getting to know all of this from media reports," he said.

On shifting the IPL semifinals from Bangalore to Navi Mumbai after bomb blasts last week, a move that has angered the Karnataka government, Shukla said there was no other option in sight. "Even we are not happy with the shifting of matches like this but players' security is paramount," he said.
