IPL final was a close contest
The IPL final between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians was thrilling but one thing in Twenty20 cricket is that it is the bowlers who seem to play a decisive role in a team’s success. It is also a format where losses don’t really wound players’ hearts, which is why there seems to be much bonhomie after a game. Much more serious cricket will be upon us soon in the form of the 50-over World Cup. National teams will be in action, and the passion, the hurt and the anger will be raw.
Revoke Rajiv Gandhi’s Bharat Ratna if he misused INS Virat
It refers to Prime Minister Narender Modi making a shocking disclosure in an election-rally that the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi misused Indian Navy warship INS Virat for holidaying with friends and relations. If it is so, then it is indeed big misuse of power and needs to be condemned through strongest possible measures including snatching of highest civilian honour of Bharat Ratna and renaming all the institutions and others named after him. Congress leaders should also immediately clarify the position.
But such an aspect should have been revealed with subsequent punitive action taken by the central government in the last five years of BJP regime at the centre rather than waiting to make it a poll-issue.
