Ranjit Bajaj is back with his words criticising AIFF, but wait... Is he RIGHT this time?

Miranic  |  Controversy  |  1 Month Ago

Just few hours before their scheduled match against Real Kashmir FC, defending I-league champions Minerva Punjab have tweeted about not agreeing to travel for their away game in Srinagar. Minerva’s stand on not playing the game unless written assurances from authorities are given comes up in the wake of latest Pulwama terrorist attack which saw 40 CRPF soldiers getting killed. 

 

The Chandigarh based club posted following tweet as a reply to I-league’s tweet which appreciated the spirit to play the game with a message reading ‘let’s play to heal.’ Minerva’s tweet read as follows: 





Last night Real Kashmir posted a tweet on their official handle which also referred to ‘let’s play to heal’, stating: 





Minerva Punjab’s tweet certainly tells that they are rather stunned than being surprised by the behaviour of I-league who for the sake of spirit of the game didn’t took Minerva’s disagreement to not travel to Jammu and Kashmir for their upcoming match seriously. 

 

After all every life matters, and tweeting the way I-league did on twitter doesn’t help much with the concerns of the I-league champions. I-league’s tweet read: 

 

“Kudos to @realkashmirfc, @minervapunjabfc and @THE_RanjitBajaj for showing the right spirit. Football prevails above all. Let's play to heal. #HeroILeague #IleagueIConquer”
