Why shoud governments offer gifts to cricketers?Members of world cup cricket team are offered hefty gifts in cash &kind by various govts.Rlys.have said they can travel free by AC class for life. TNGOVT have given 3crores to team & 1cr to Aswin. Karnataka govt hv given 25 lacs to each. Ifeel these gifts being offered out of taxpayers money which otherwise is meant for developmental work.is unreasonable, unjust & beynd realms of legality.
Reasons: 1.They are unger contract withBCCI & get salary in crores besides allowances.As salaried people it is their duty to play for a win.Is a salaried employee paid extra for finishing a file? 2. Legally the teem CANNOT BE A REPRESENTATIVE of INDIA. BCCI is a private body registered under Tamilnadu societies act withno govt control over its affairs,finance & no govt, nominee inBoard of directors unlike I O A, ITTF, ILTA ETC. It is a commercial business activity not coming under purview of govt audit .If someone files a PIL against Bcci & govt gifts crores of public money can be saved & used for public purpose.
