Kingfisher Employees Union appeals Yuvraj not to play for Mallya-owned RCB
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Days after he was sold for a whopping sum of Rs 14 crore in IPL 7 auction, Kingfisher Employees Union have appealed the southpaw not to play for the Vijay Mallya owned franchise.
According to a report published in a leading news magazine, the Kingfisher Employees Union has reportedly written a letter to the Indian cricket star, asking him not to play for the franchise owned by Vijay Mallya. At a time when Mallya is splurging money in Formula One and Kingfisher calendars, the employees of Kingfisher Airlines haven`t been paid their dues for 18 months.
The non-payment of the dues and the grounding of the airlines have forced employees to resort to hunger-strike and moving court. However, Mallya has told that he has no resources to play the dues.
RCB skipper Virat Kohli was very keen to make Yuvraj Singh a part of the squad, as a result of which the franchise signed him for the huge sum.
