PM promises effective action in IPL issue if wrongdoings found
New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday promised effective action in the IPL issue if any wrongdoings were found during investigations.
"There was a discussion on this issue in Parliament and the Finance Minister also gave a reply. He said that the Finance Ministry is investigating the issue and if anything comes out of it, then we will take effective action," Singh said when asked to comment on alleged black money involved in the Twenty-20 cricket league.
