HCA president Azharuddin said that they are not at fault in the incident that took place at the Gymkhana ground for the tickets of Rath – Australia T20 cricket match. Azhar said that the clash was unfortunate and said that he would submit a report to the state government about what happened. Azharuddin responded impatiently to the questions asked by the media representatives and said that managing the match is not that easy. When asked about the allegations of selling the tickets in black, he said that the details of the tickets will be revealed tomorrow. Even after this, it is an understatement to say that the tickets are sold out.
The state government has taken the incident of a stampede for tickets at the gymkhana ground in which many people were injured. Sports Minister Srinivas Goud held an urgent review meeting. If such a big event is taking place, the HCA members were asked whether they should make advance arrangements. He told them that if the government had been informed earlier, they would have taken appropriate action.
Telangana state is number one in all fields. Hyderabad city is getting international fame. At a time like this, the city loses its reputation with such incidents. Minimum precautions should have been taken,’ said Minister Srinivas Goud to the HCA members. All the officials of various departments are advised to coordinate and make the event a success.
Azharuddin spoke after Minister Srinivas Goud spoke to the media. He said that the errors in HCA will be corrected. He said that HCA will take steps to bring more fame to Telangana. “Match management involves many aspects. It is not as simple as sitting down and talking. After many years there was an opportunity to organize the match. No one can do anything when unexpected events happen. HCA stands by victims. In the coming days, we will organize matches with the government,’ said Azhar.
