“My husband (Sadanand Sule) is talking to lawyers to take appropriate legal action against those who are trying to defame our name,” Ms. Sule told reporters outside Parliament.
She was referring to media reports that Sadanand Sule holds a stake through power of attorney from his father B R Sule in telecasting agency of IPL, Multi Screen Media (formerly Sony Entertainment Television).
Asked if the Congress was behind the campaign, she said, “No, Congress is our ally and we have come together not for cricket but to serve the nation.”
On a media report that Praful Patel’s personal secretary had sent a mail to former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor with a document containing projections of new franchisee valuations in IPL, she asked “was it a confidential (document) or classified that should not have passed on to others.”
