Who is getting benefited out of power politics

Finally it is published that IPL (Version 2) is migrating its venue to South Africa from India. The reason for this is given as security issue. While IPL requested for the security of players Indian government rejected due to the security requirements for public ahead of Loksabha election. It is obvious that politics and public governance is of high priority than entertainment, and economics.

It should be accepted that IPL generates revenue to a greater extent. Due to IPL the sports and entertainment sector grows, media takes its priority due to the telecast rights, advertisements and sponsership enable revenue flow, hotel, tourism and restaurants generate profit due to the human traffic.

However, election and public governance is more important compared to these sectors; as majority of the stakeholders from these various industries are from private sector. These industries are not the priority of aam aadmi. These industries acts as a supporting environment for satisfying the basic needs of human being.

It is not be forgetten that due to the power politics played by the politicians and the IPL management, India is losing revenue and it is somebody else who is benefiting. It is not possible to postpone the general election. But it is possible to postpone the IPL by a fortnight or a month. What made IPL not to reconsider the schedule? Was there no unity between IPL and Indian politics? Didn't our politicians strong enough to negotiate with the private players?
