IPL, Modi and Politics…!!

Lalit Modi is known as a fine, soft spoken and a bit of introvert guy who is also a friend for friends. Once known as close to Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and very soon close to the people of Rajasthan and was later famous as the controversial boyfriend of a political party politician lady. A trader who is not in formal politics, yet informally ruling naturally becomes a soft target for others. He forgot that his mentor Mr. Sharad Pawar is like an iceberg, much more than what he seems to be visible. Owner of cooperative movement in Maharashtra, Sole trustee of  Y. B Chouhan Trust, One who outplayed the oldest player of cricket, Jagmohan Dalmiya. He was the one who questioned the foreign origin of Sonia Gandhi's, created a different party and then teamed up with Sonia Gandhi in Maharashtra and Central government. Who is an entrepreneur, a player amongst the cricketer, sugar baron in sugar industry, development guru in Baramati for his men and an expert in putting aside his political friends and enemies in style.

I may believe that Supryia Pawar has got nothing to do with IPL, but whole Mumbai knows that how she is related to Kapoors, Jains and Khans.  As Amar Singh on being expelled from Samajwadi Party was told that all was his mistake, it’s time for Modi to think about himself and his life. The story has become interesting now with indulgence of politics (two Cabinet Ministers), Bollywood (Shahrukh Khan, Preeti Zinta) and a smart attractive woman (Sunanda), all these people had made this story even more interesting than IPL itself. The final nail in the coffin was the presence of biggies like Subrata Roy, Mukesh Ambani and King of good times Vijay Mallya.

This spicy story has made people of the country forget everything about inflation, starvation of farmers, unemployed youth, problems with naxals. Even the country's TV, newspapers and politicians are busy with only this story. Our public is great, they sometimes make Harshad Mehta and Ketan Parekh heros and sometimes zero.

Modi committed a mistake by opening Pandora’s box by pointing a finger on Tharoor and see where has he landed….and this saga of IPL, Modi and Politics goes on and on……..
