Chavan miffed at Pawar for meeting Sena chief

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Feb 8: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan disapproved Union Minister Sharad Pawar's meeting with Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray over IPL issue.

Speaking to reporters, Chavan said that his government was "competent enough" to give adequate security to IPL matches.

Chavan said, "I do not think there is need to take permission from any other authority in the state... There cannot be an extra-constitutional authority."

According to sources, Pawar, who is also the president of the Mumbai Cricket Association, requested Thackeray to withdraw his threat against Australian cricketers' participation in the IPL cricket tourney.

However, Chavan refused to comment on why Pawar met Thackeray on the issue.

"Don't ask me. It will be better you ask Pawar about his motive behind meeting Thackeray," he said.

The chief minister further said, "All security will be provided and any body who will try to take law in hands, try to perpetrate any violent incident, state government will take stern view and initiate legal action."
