Kolkata: Jun 2, 2012

 

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday appealed to the Union Minister and Maharashtra Cricket Association president Vilasrao Deshmukh for reconsideration of their five-year ban on the entry of IPL franchisee Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shahrukh Khan to the Wankhede Stadium.

 

Mamata spoke to the former Maharashtra chief minister Deshmukh, the Union Science and Technology Minister, who visited Kolkata with prime minister Manmohan Singh, according to reports.

 

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on Friday banned Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan from entering the Wankhede Stadium for five years for misbehaving with its officials and violating its rules.

 

The “unanimous” decision was taken at the MCA Managing Committee meeting called to discuss action on Khan who was involved in a skirmish with the security and officials of the association after KKR’s victory over Mumbai Indians on Wednesday night.

 

MCA President Deshmukh, who chaired the meeting, said that his association was sending out a message that misbehaviour of any kind would not be tolerated.

 

“If rules are violated, action will be taken. It does not depend who the individual is. It’s a message to everyone whosoever he or she may be that stern action will be taken if there is any misbehaviour,” he told a press conference.

 

Khan had, however, had denied he had misbehaved and acted only after children, including his kids, were “manhandled” by the security staff.
