Terming it the Indian Immoral League, Bhartiya Janata Party has demanded a ban on the T-20 League and a thorough investigation into its alleged links to anti-social elements as the fixing, the party said, could not have taken place without the patronage of the organisers.

Party spokesperson Madhav Bhandari claimed in a press conference on Thursday that the arrest of three bookies a couple of days ago, the murder of a teenager by the people involved in betting and the recent arrest of cricket players related to the match fixing should be seen from a larger perspective.

“It would be improper to believe that the betting was the handywork only of the underworld goons. The betting and match fixing are both co-related to each other and hence the investigation in this should be done thoroughly. Government should now think twice before allowing the organisation of the League,” he said.
