Mamata Invites BCCI-PCB to Hold Meet in Kolkata


Kolkata: As Shiv Sena activists stormed the office of BCCI president Shasank Manohar to protest the proposed meet between Shasank Manohar and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Shahryar Khan to resume cricketing ties between the estranged neighbours, West Bengal chief minister has invited both the boards to hold the meet in Kolkata.

Around 70 Sena activists disrupted the BCCI office on Monday morning. They were carrying black flags and shouted slogans of ‘Pakistan murdabad’, ‘Shashank Manohar murdabad’ and ‘Shahryar Khan Go Back’. Later over two dozen activists were arrested by the Mumbai Police.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has claimed that it was a meeting with the BCCI President to tell him to cancel the negotiations with Pakistan. He claimed it was not a protest. However, Raut said that cricketing relations between the countries won’t be allowed until Pakistan stopped terrorism on the border.
