At last the scheduled Himachal Pradesh – Goa Ranji match started at 3 P.M. at HPCA stadium in Dharamshala. Earlier the match was delayed due to last night’s government operation to take over the association’s property due to the alleged misuse of leased land by HPCA. “Now the match is on and is conducted by HPCA,but under strict control of Himachal Police, which controlled the people for getting in or out of the stadium,” said Sanjay Sharma PRO HPCA in a press meet at Dharamshala on Sunday evening.
Sanjay said that Virbhadra Singh had one agenda since its Congress government formation and it is to fight against HPCA and Anurag Thakur. He said, “we are organizing the match so that game should not be harmed. But definitely we will be going to court shortly to seek justice.” He said that in last regime of Virbhadra Singh also they have fought up to Supreme Court and won.
Sanjay said that in 2005 too, Vikas Thakur, tried to enter forcefully in Dharamshala stadium to take over the control but failed. Today also that man is creating the same scene in Luhnoo cricket stadium in Bilaspur. He said the entire cricket team under the leadership of Anurag Thakur shall keep on doing the work to develop the game in state to make entry of state boy in Indian team.
