Petition To Ban Indian Premier League (IPL)

In order to curb evil effect of Corona Pandemic , States are declaring state wise lock down one by one. In the last week of April 2021, firstly weakened curfew was imposed. Then weakened lock down was declared and now in most states of India, one week lock down has been declared. Still there is no any sign of Corona Pandemic weakening down.

We have to witness , what is happening nation wide. What steps have been taken by the Government of India in such worsening condition. Election campaign were in full swing till middle of Aprilm 2021. However , in view of increasing number of Corona Patient in India, during the last phase of Bengal Election, several restrictions were imposed during election campaign.

CBSE has already cancelled Class Xth Board Examination. It is very recent News that almost all upcoming examinations have also been canceled by respective examination bodies. In such a scenario, it is a matter of Surprise , why IPL is going. Is Cricket Match is of so prime importance? Is IPL more important than CBSE xth Board exam? Is IPL is corona proof. Why such activities like IPL are being ignored by the State?

Players have no choice, but to make money by playing the game. Making money is of course an important part. This fact is well known that Corona spares no body. But if players life itself is running at risk, why to endanger their lives. Only for the sake of money , life of Players and life of Citizen at large can not be risked. But lethargy of state in managing the state of IPL in CORONA Time is alarming.

In first Week of May 2021, one writ Petition has been filed by one Mr. Karan S Thukral before the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi. The case number of afore mentioned Writ Petition is W.P.(C) 5118/2021, which came up before PRATHIBA M. SINGH, H.J. High Court of Delhi on 03.05.2021. Keeping the nature of case, case was placed before the Hon'ble Division Bench, High Court of Delhi.

In this case, the Petitioner namely Mr. Karan S Thukral appeared before the Hon'ble Court and inter-alia sought a ban on the conduct of Indian Premier League (hereinafter, �IPL�) matches and prays for directions against the Union of India, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for stoppage of IPL matches with immediate effect. This matter was referred to Hon'ble Division Bench as the issue involved in the matter was of public interest. Now it is to be seen, what Hon'ble Division is passing direction in the matter.

But one this is for certain that state has been poorly performing in tackling the state of IPL matches in CORONA time. The IPL matches are to be continued till 30.05.2021. Allowing to continue this IPL match in corona time is like playing with fire. If Stated takes any steps after the order of any court , then what are the responsibility of State? Why every time Courts have to pass direction while dealing with such burning issues?
