India-Pakistan WT20: Himachal CM gave country bad name, says Anurag Thakur

Peeved over the ongoing controversy surrounding the India-Pakistan T-20 World Cup tie to be held in Kolkata, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur today said that Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh has embarrased the country.

"It's unfortunate that the Himachal Pradesh chief minister kept changing his statements again and again. This gave Pakistan an opportunity to point fingers at India," Anurag Thakur said in an exclusive interview with Aaj Tak's Rahul Kanwal.

The BCCI secretary alleged that the changing stand of Virbhadra Singh on giving assurance about the security arrangement for Pakistan team has created an impression that India was not capable of providing security to the visiting team and tarnished the image of the state and the country.

"The way they (Congress) have politicised it, has harmed the country and its image," Thakur said.

Asked about his alleged bias towards Dharamshala as the match venue, Thakur said that he is proud that Dharamshala houses the "world's most beautiful stadium" and that people must be allowed to enjoy the match in such a serene venue.

"Several international cricketers want to play in Dharamshala," Thakur said.

Citing security reasons, the International Cricket Council (ICC) recently relocated the India-Pakistan group match to Kolkata.

A thick security blanket has been thrown around Eden Gardens and the hotel, where the Pakistan cricket team has been put up, in view of threat to the March 19 India-Pakistan World Twenty 20 match in the city.
