Centre to discuss IPL with host States

Vinay Kumar

New Delhi: Concerned over security arrangements for the coming cricket extravaganza as it coincides with the general election, the Centre plans to discuss the revised schedule of Indian Premier League (IPL) matches with the host States.

The IPL organisers have conveyed to the Home Ministry that they do not require any Central forces for the security. “The Home Ministry has passed on the new schedule to the States and is waiting for their response as to whether they need para-military forces for matches or not,” Special Secretary (Internal Security) Raman Srivastava said here on Thursday.

Response

He said that after receiving the response from the State governments, the Home Ministry would approach the Election Commission, informing them about the security arrangements.

The IPL matches are scheduled to be held in Delhi, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
