In what can possibly only be explained as a cockamamie conspiracy theory of a parochial politician and chief of the MDMK, Vaiko, released a statement on Thursday stating that the Supreme Court appointed committee’s two year ban on Indian Premiere League team Chennai Super Kings is an anti-Tamil plot by Lalit Modi.

In the statement condemning the ‘plot’, Vaiko says that the Lalit Modi had warned Tamils in one of his letter to Harish Salve. Since for the first time in history, a Tamil (N Srinivasan) was appointed as the head of International Cricket Council, Lalit Modi could not tolerate it and has created troubles for CSK to get it banned for two years, according to Vaiko.

Vaiko says that CSK gave glory to Tamil Nadu cricket, and that the cricket fraternity must come together to protect the team.

CSK has been banned because its team owners and administrators, most importantly Gurunath Meiyappan who is the son-in-law of N Srinivasan, were found guilty of betting on IPL matches, which is illegal in India. Lalit Modi, facing several cases in India is now living in London and has been ‘exposing’ Meiyappan and Srinivasan through his media interviews and social media accounts.

Vaiko has accused Lalit Modi of absconding following the reports of his corruption scandals when he was controlling the Bihar Cricket Association.

He also says that the allegations of Central and State Ministers of BJP helping out Lalit Modi against the interests of the Government of India has shaken up Indian politics.
