Centre asked to probe Tharoor`s role in Kochi IPL franchise
Thiruvananthapuram: CPI Kerala Secretary
Veliyam Bhargavan on Wednesday demanded a Central probe into the
allegations against Minister of State for External Affairs
Shashi Tharoor over the IPL Kochi franchise issue.
In a statement here, he said Tharoor had been actively
involved in getting the franchisee of IPL for Kerala and
"ensured" that his friend Sunanda Pushkar got substantial
stakes in the Kochi firm, which won the bid for Rs 1,530
He said it had been reported that Pushkar got 17 per cent
free stake in the franchise and Tharoor had allegedly misused
his office for monitory gains from IPL.
Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee should come out with
its opinion on the Tharoor`s `misdeals` in connection with the
IPL, he said.
