All sports should have openness, says Gill

“India is a fiercely democratic country in which open and free debate and discussion takes place in decision making. This applies to all the things including sports,” he told reporters outside the Parliament.

On suggestions to nationalise IPL and cricket, Gill said “it is a strange word and a phrase used by someone else.”

When asked about the necessity to clean IPL and cricket, he said, “Democracy is like a sunflower, which needs a lot of sunshine. I think that applies to sports also.”

On whether politicians involved in sporting bodies, he said “there was no need to say anything.” The Minister, however, reiterated his various suggestions about Olympic sports, which included a clear knowledge about the voter list acceptable to the states.
