Will a Sports Bill be passed?

June 04 2013

After the IPL fixing scandal, the talk about a sports bill is gathering momentum. In the recent past, Sports Minister Ajay Maken has shown a lot of interest in introducing the sports bill, but Sharad Pawar and Rajiv Shukla had aggressively spoken against it. Today Jitendra Singh is the sports minister and is considered to be close to Rahul Gandhi. Like the prime minister, the sports minister is also of the belief that politicians should stay away from sports. In the current scenario, preparations are being done to introduce the sports bill again. Steps are also being taken so that the BCCI is made answerable and the PM and Rahul himself are said to be of the opinion that the BCCI should come under the ambit of the RTI Act.
