The remaining matches of the Indian Premier League, the IPL, are under a cloud of crisis. A petition was filed in the Delhi High Court on Monday. In this, the High Court has been requested to issue orders to cancel the remaining matches of the IPL. It has also been demanded in the petition that a notice to the Central, Delhi Government, Board and DDCA should be issued to them to issue a notice regarding the promotion of cricket and IPL more than public health.
Lawyer has filed the petition
This petition has been filed by Karan Singh Thakral, a lawyer and social worker from Delhi. Thakral is currently infected himself and is distressed to see the poor condition of medical facilities in Delhi. He has filed his petition through another lawyer. It appealed to the High Court to order an inquiry into the matter as to how IPL was preferred over public health. This matter should be investigated in depth. The petition said that the remaining matches should be canceled with immediate effect.
The central government is also under siege
The petition has appealed to the High Court to first seek an answer from the central government about the situation arising out of Kovid-19 in Delhi as to why these conditions were created. After this, a demand has been sought from the BCCI and then the DDCA. The petition has also been demanded to send notice to Delhi government and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Petitioner has said that the High Court is requesting that he prevent any IPL match from happening in Delhi, because the protection of people’s health is the greatest need and demand of the time. People are not getting beds and other necessary facilities in hospitals. On Monday, the matter came up for hearing on a single bench. This bench handed over the responsibility of hearing the petition to the Second Division Bench. It will now be heard on Wednesday, May 5.
