IPL 2020: BCCI in Trouble, After VIVO Exit, Calls to Drop PayTM, Byju’s & Dream11 Grow: Report
Calls are now being made to drop sponsors who have any Chinese links.
RSS affiliate Swadeshi Jagran Manch (SJM) will start a ‘Quit China’ movement from today and will protest against IPL sponsors with the Chinese connect.
According to a report by Outlook, BCCI will be among the main ‘targets’ for the SJM unit. Dhananjay Bhide, a senior office-bearer of the Manch, told Outlook that the campaign is an attempt to add muscle to the concept of an ‘Atamnirbhar Bharat’ and drive a strong message to agents who continue to tow the Chinese line despite government appeals.
“Cricket has to choose between a self-reliant India and sponsors with Chinese money,” said Bhide.
