With Sports Minister Ajay Maken determined to bring Indian cricket under the RTI Act, it's now an all out war between him and one of the world's most powerful cricketing bodies - the BCCI.
The organisation today hit back at Maken, saying the minister was not aware of the 'ground realities' as they have already adopted transparency measures.
Maken, earlier in the day, had reportedly said that he is ready to consider BCCI's reservation on certain clauses of the Draft National Sports (Development) Bill, but wants the Cricket Board to come under the ambit of RTI.
'What do they pay for?'
"What do they mean by they don't get government funds so shouldn't come under RTI? They are indirectly getting government funds. How about the tax exemptions? How about the land they get? How much did they pay for the Ferozeshah Kotla?" said Maken.
