IPL misusing Indian passion for cricket: Yechury

ALAPPUZHA: CPI (M) politburo member Sitaram Yechury has said that the Indian Premier League (IPL) had nothing to do with cricket and that it was misusing the Indian passion for cricket.

Inaugurating a symposium on �EMS and the Media, held in connection with the birth centenary of former Chief Minister E M S Namboodiripad here on Sunday, Yechury said the IPL was actually being used a backdrop for shady ventures that ran into thousands of crores of rupees. The entire IPL funds, from where the funds were originating and where they were going to had to be probed thoroughly, he said.
