New Delhi: Former cricketer and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Kirti Azad on Sunday, sat on a hunger strike with several other people against the way the Indian Premier League (IPL) was being managed, following a series of controversies hitting the tournament.
"I'm not against the IPL but the way it is run. There is no transparency, accountability or discipline. Why doesn't all this indiscipline happen in Test, one-day or domestic cricket matches," Azad asked while speaking to reporters at the Ferozeshah Kotla here.
"The unfortunate part is that there is too much of politics in sports. Politicians have got into the game and spoilt it. They should look at it as sportsmanship," he said.
