Harsha,

Living in India and we should all know about corruption only tooooo well. The High command of Ruling Party in India oozes with corruption and people are forgiving enough to re-elect these parties in many states. Well what about opposition is no good either. My point...Ministers and Ex-Ministers from these parties are in BCCI what do you think will be state of affairs??

and on Betting... per Indian Penal Code Betting on Skill game is not Illegal....so what is Mumbai police doing ignoring it in an open statement and also they will not go after Bollywood Heroes and Heroines who are involved shows clear underworld connection? Looks like Delhi police touched a raw nerve in the spot fixing group and their retaliation seems to be target on Mr.Meyappan. And its Fun time for Media.
