Shimla : Himachal Pradesh Congress on Sunday asked the BCCI to either cancel the proposed India-Pakistan T-20 World Cup match slated for March 19 at Dharamsala or shift the venue.
The executive of the Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee also criticised the Secretary of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and BJP MP Anurag Thakur for the decision to hold the match in Dharamsala.
“BCCI should either cancel or shift the match to other state to honour the sentiments of families of martyrs,” HPCC president Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said.
Sukkhu also demanded that 50 per cent income from eight other matches to be played at the same venue be disbursed among the kins of those who laid down their lives in successive wars against Pakistan or during anti-terror operations.
