Sports Minister Jitendra Singh presented a tough stance on drafting a law to curb betting.

Singh said he has a "long-term plan" to curb corruption in cricket after the game was thrown into disarray by the spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013.

Speaking at the conference of Ministers and Secretaries of States/Union Teritories, in-charge of sports and youth affairs, Jitendra said transparency was the key to preventing corruption whether in cricket or any other game.

"We are talking about ways to bring about transparency in all sports. We have a long-term plan and we will use this opportunity with the Ministers as well as the Secretaries of States to work out some sort of plan to try and curb this menace," Jitendra said.
