Covai Post Network

Chennai : For the eagerly awaiting Chennai fans, it might yet be another case of disappointment as the IPL matches could be shifted out due to the ongoing protests against the central government over Cauvery issue that turned violent near the Chepauk stadium on Tuesday.

Top BCCI sources have confirmed that shifting the games would be to ensure the safety and security of the teams. What they fear is that the situation could worsen when RCB of Bangalore comes to play in Chennai.

Film fraternity members, involved in yesterday’s protests on Wednesday declared that they will not allow the April 20 match for sure.

The tone and tenor of the protesters, who also questioned Rajiniakanth for his statement on tougher law to deal with persons attacking the police and lashed out against him for reading out statements on directions from elsewhere.

After the film fraternity members announced stepped up protests against the IPL, the BCCI leadership in Delhi went into a huddle and discussed whether shifting the matches would be a good idea in view of the violence that took place outside the stadium.

“Most likely the matches would be shifted out, but an official decision will be taken soon,” the BCCI source said.

Rajinilanth had tweeted against the violence that took place yesterday outside the stadium and called for tougher laws to punish anyone attacking the guards. To this Seeman, film director and Naam Tamilar Katchi leader said that Rajinikanth never spoke up when people are beaten up by police without any provocation.

It is strange that his twitter handle gets active only occasionally and is silent by and large when peoples issues are involved, he said.

What does Rajinikanth know about Cuavery said hamimun Ansari, film producer.
