Money, politics and ego: the complete story of IPL gate
Thursday, 22nd April 2010
Reliable sources in the government told that there are series of SMS' with investigation agencies regarding the aborted and successful IPL bids for the two new teams in the IPL.

They have given vital information about what transpired between Shashi Tharoor, Lalit Modi, some leaders of the cricket world and Gujarati investors after the IPL Kochi bid was won by Rendezvous Sports World. The investigators reportedly have details about how Modi tried to sabotage the process.

Modi is being targeted by a section of the BCCI because of fear of the proof that government's agencies may have. Income tax department sleuths had Monday said that the original bids by Videocon for Pune and Adani group for Ahmedabad are missing. The IPL has not yet commented on it.

The assessment within the Congress and the government is that Modi conspired to make sure that the Adani group, Gujarat-based industrial house of Gautam Adani, and Venugopal Dhoot of Videocon could win their bids. Adani's bid was even backed by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who is desperate to connect with the younger generation to counter the Rahul Gandhi effect.

Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel and Pawar's close aide is also is under pressure because his daughter is employed by the IPL. However, these are just 'findings' and not evidence.
