Doesn't make him a Billionaire. I am interested in links which talk about his personal wealth (in numbers) before and after IPL. I am also interested in knowing how much exactly all these guys (Modi, Powar, Manohar, ...) make out of the IPL (franchise money, TV rights, etc) legally and illegally. Good to get all of these out and hence I support the IT raid and investigation.
IT raids and investigation ???????yyyyyy??just because some stupid media channels want to defame ipl without any proof??just because corrupt parties like rjd and cpi(m) dont like capitalistion. THIS issue will seriously hurt the economic intrest of india.this issue shows that Govt cant digest growth of any body.This will hurt the goodwill of respected business man like ambani and mallya.

Media only reports what it has been leaked to. They didn't make up the IT report. You think the media faked the IT raids? You think the media forced BCCI to meet and get rid of Modi? The issue here is Modi and not the IPL. Get rid of him, replace him with a more professional commissioner who is paid a very good salary and manages it like a professional unit and not his own personal toy.

if modi is so corrupt' date=' why he raised the issue of kochi ownership?[/quote'] Some more masala for you to digest :popcorn:
So what made Lalit Modi suddenly twitter innocuously last weekend about Sunanda Pushkar and how Tharoor had allegedly asked him not to inquire into who she was — the kindle that lit the fire stack? It’s common knowledge that Modi and Tharoor are friends, so why this sudden and ugly fall out? (Friends of Tharoor say that Modi is misusing a bantering remark the minister had made to him over a drink. Tharoor is, indeed, set to marry Pushkar but is waiting for a divorce from his Canadian wife Christa Giles to come through and, therefore, has been loath to make his relationship public. This is why when Modi asked him in a nudge-nudge sort of way, “So, who is Sunanda Pushkar?” Tharoor had laughingly evaded the question saying, ‘Don’t ask me that as yet.’ So what made Modi turn that into something sinister?) The answers lie muddied in the pit and snake back to earlier events. When Lalit Modi lost the elections to the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA), he not only lost a fiefdom, he lost much-needed immunity. With a Congress government replacing the BJP in the saddle, his political patronage was blown and more than 20 cases were opened against him, relating to tax evasion and financial irregularities when he was at the helm of the RCA. He desperately needed new armour, and a firm foot back in the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI). The rumour mills say that Lalit Modi had approached Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and was assured by the latter that if he could ensure that the Gujarat team wins the franchise and brings both glamour and money to the state, he’d be made the secretary of the Gujarat Cricket Association (of which the chief minister is the president). image At first, Modi tried hard to make friend Tharoor back off so that the Adani bid could be more competitive. He even tried to mislead the Kochi group by telling them that all they needed to win the race was $299 million. The consortium, however, was reportedly alerted by former Indian skippers Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri that Modi was actually seeking $322 million. The Kochi team was also told that they would face many technical hurdles to block them from winning the bid. But instead of backing off, the Tharoor- mentored Kochi consortium bid an astronomical Rs 1,500 crore and won the franchise. Powerful men — potential investors and politicians — across the country flew into a tizzy. Allegations began to fly fast and thick. The Kochi consortium alleges that Modi offered them a $50 million bribe to abandon their bid after they had won the Kochi franchise. They refused. The desperation in different quarters soared. The rumour goes too that, at one point, Modi made an urgent call to Tharoor saying things had gone beyond him and if Tharoor didn’t back off, Modi’s life would be in danger. But Modi was not the only angry man. Rumour also has it that Tharoor finds himself politically isolated for other reasons.

If modi found guilt of match fixing charges' date=' the whole country will suffer[/quote'] what about the phorun babas who actually under-performed :desiwoman: BTW I dont think he would dare fix matches as he knows that if he ever gets caught fixing matches, people will not wait for any court's ruling. Its one thing which can destroy whatever he has done, Im sure he has made a lot of money in IPL but fixing matches would be a stupid thing to do for someone like him PS: I saw his interview on BBC a year ago and he mentioned that he works for BCCI for the love of cricket , he has given up his day job for promoting cricket and he does it all for Rs1 a month. :hail:

‘Mr Lalit Modi has had a trail of failed ventures and defaults till four years back but has a lifestyle now that includes a private jet, a luxury yacht and a fleet of Mercedes S class and BMW cars all acquired in the last three years.’

there a facts which prove that no-one is innocent * 4.9 or .5% of share was given up, if it was an investment then why would someone give it up ? * Modi has his relatives involved from internet rights to team ownership, still he claims to make rs 1 a month and owns pvt plane ... So I dont think anyone is dudh ka dhula here ... its just that both these guys arent as experienced as Pawar or dalmiya ....

Modi is not innocent. He is a thug. He has brought shame to both India and Indian cricket. This is bigger than 2000 match fixing allegations. Now IT department has started questionning some of the players just because of him. Players always paid their taxes in time unlike IPL. Funny thing is some of the hardcore Modi fans who 3-4 days ago were giving credit to Modi for every good thing that has happened to India and Indian cricket. Now they are saying that Modi isn't alone others are also making money out of it. :hysterical: Comparing him to ministers and demanding action against ministers is also funny. Two wrongs don't make a right. God knows from where this money is coming.

You are wrong dude. Modi moved the IPL last year so that we die hard cricket fans can watch IPL. He is a true indian and those who don't like him are terrorism supporter. :(( You should feel proud of Modi. And yeah "Modi ko sab khoon maaf". :hehe:

Congress has unleashed it's rabid dog NDTV on Modi now. NDTV is only targetting Modi as if their sole aim to bring him down. All the news presenters are looking grim faced as if Sonia Gandhi is standing in front of them.. with a whip in her hands... :-)

What about all the mistakes for which he got caught? :nervous:
He's going to get out of this mess coz if he goes down, he's going to take a lot of influential people down with him. And I'm sure that if LKM put 20% in his pocket, his "masters" took 25-30%. Only difference - They didn't get caught. LKM is the fall guy.

If he has not contributed to Congress treasury then he'll not be saved. ideally he should've sent some amount to Ahmad Patel on a regular basis and everything would've been okay.
To be blunt, he was barking up the wrong tree. You don't mess with the Congress Party of India just because you run a billion dollar league. The government is the government. No one screws with them.

Modi's ego has taken him to the lowest ebb. Had he worked out a compro and got on with it, he would've saved himself the embarrassment.

Shiv Sena demands entertainment tax on IPL (tax waiver costs Maharashtra Rs 500 cr.)

MUMBAI: A Shiv Sena MLA on Tuesday filed a PIL in the Bombay High Court seeking that Maharashtra government should levy entertainment tax on Indian Premier League (IPL). The government took the decision to levy entertainment tax on the tournament in January, but it is yet to be implemented, Shiv Sena leader Subhash Desai said. The state could have earned around Rs 15 crore in entertainment tax from every IPL season...Punjab and Delhi are already levying this tax on the tournament, the petition stated. The tax revenue from IPL can be used for welfare schemes in the cash-strapped Maharashtra, it argues. This year, 15 IPL ties have taken place in the state so far, the PIL stated. IPL Chairman Lalit Modi and BCCI have been made party to the petition, apart from the state government. It is expected to come up for hearing on April 22.
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics/nation/Shiv-Sena-leader-moves-HC-demanding-entertainment-tax-on-IPL/articleshow/5836985.cms How can they be left behind when all parties including even Laloo and Mulayam are jumping into the bandwagon. :P

The ONLY mistake Lalit Modi made was - He Got Caught
I think the bigger mistakes was to take direct panga with Chidambaram with IPL 2 and then with Tharoor in IPL 3 .. L Modi was after Congress to some extent on several occasions and that was quite clear .. that is why it is said you do not mess up with the governing party at the center :P .. I think L Modi was also a mohra to some extent in the Congress-BJP-NCP politics and ultimately he faced all the problems .. maybe he hoped that some of the political parties he sided with would save him but everyone tried to save their own face and left him stranded :D

200 replies in this thread. Mamu must be happy :P
More than being happy about 200 replies -- here is what I am happy about I am strenthening my case about being a "good predictor of crickety things". Look at my OP -- I had "hoped" both these morons get kicked out -- well one has already bitten the dust -- 2nd is on the chopping block :-) Here is a thought for you all -- put your money where MAMU does ! -- you will win most of the times.

if these moronic political parties can cause closure of future IPL, it will be the only good they would have done for game of cricket in their entire existence. They'd still be moronic parties, just a rare good side-effect.

He is not wrong, like he is saying why was there no tax for 3 IPL, I could also ask, why did they not think about that for 3 IPL. why only now?
Because he was under the impression that IPL existed for the good of cricket. Only when watching Burkha Dutt on NDTV last week that he realised that it is not so.

Franchises planning to seize control of IPL!!

IPL team-owners don't want Shashank Manohar? NDTV Correspondent , Wednesday April 21, 2010, New Delhi The stage seems to be set for a fight over who will take over from Lalit Modi. While BCCI chief Shashank Manohar is Sharad Pawar's choice, some of the IPL team-owners apparently think otherwise. NDTV has learnt that they don't believe Manohar can run the IPL like Lalit Modi. So they have their own plan in place. If Modi does go, they will propose to the IPL Governing Council that: IPL franchises will nominate one of their own to be appointed as IPL Commissioner on a rotation basis for a period of two years The Vice Chairman of IPL would be a person nominated by the BCCI The Governing council should be controlled by the BCCI with Modi as a member
