CAIT opposes BCCI move to retain Chinese firm Vivo as IPL title sponsor

new Delhi. Merchants' organization CAT has opposed the decision of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to retain the title sponsor to Chinese company Vivo for the Indian Premier League (IPL). The IPL will be in Dubai this year due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAT) has written in a letter to Home Minister Amit Shah demanding that the government should not allow BCCI to conduct IPL.

CAT is spearheading a campaign to boycott Chinese goods in the country. It has urged the Home Minister to take immediate cognizance of the matter and not allow the BCCI to conduct IPL Dubai or elsewhere. The traders association has also written a letter to Foreign Minister S Jaishankar about this. An e-mail sent to Vivo India did not elicit any response.

The Governing Council of the IPL on Sunday decided to retain all its sponsors, including Chinese mobile company Vivo and approved the tournament to be held in the UAE due to Kovid-19. In the meeting of the Governing Council held digitally, it was decided that the IPL tournament will be held from September 19 to November 10.
