Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy has directly targeted Amit Shah and his son Jay Shah, questioning him ahead of the match between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. The BJP MP tweeted, “Does BCCI’s Jay Shah know that his father handles the Home Ministry.” Along with this, Swamy has also raised questions about the underworld don’s betting.

Subramanian Swamy wrote in his tweet on Sunday (October 18), “What is the urgency to have a cricket match with Terror salesman Pakistan? Does Jay Shah of BCCI know what his father is preaching as Home Minister? Cricket playing is mandatory for Dubai Dons making money by betting. Hence cancel this cricket match and save nation’s honour.”
Before Subramanian Swamy, BJP MP and Union Minister Giriraj Singh has also raised some similar questions. Giriraj Singh said on Monday that the match between India and Pakistan should be reconsidered. Because the relations between the two countries are not good.
At the same time, BCCI Vice President Rajiv Shukla has said on the question of cancellation of the match that this match cannot be cancelled. India has agreed to play, so at the last moment we cannot go back. India will have to play this match under ICC rules.
