Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Friday demanded a ban on the Indian Premier League (IPL), alleging that the "civilised game" of cricket has been degenerated into a "vulgar" display of money and immorality leading to national security threat.
In a statement, Swamy said the ban could be lifted after barring from the management or ownership of teams all persons actively involved in the cinema world or who hold an elected office in politics.

Whenever people write hime off, Subramaniam Swamy manages to barge into the newsrooms, grabbing eyeballs and making national headlines, preparing the ground for the demise of yet another government.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who doesn't forgive his enemies, never got along with Swamy (second from right), his old Jan Sangh mate.
AIADMK chief J. Jayalalithaa quickly dumped Swamy after using him to pull down Vajpayee's government.

Swamy shares with his brother RR Subramanian, a nuclear strategist formerly with the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, the tendency to talk about his parents as if they were ideologies first and human beings second. “My father was very left, and his economics would never have suited my brother,” Subramanian told me. “He was basically a Marxist. He never put the [Brahminical] sacred thread on his sons.” When I interjected, remarking that Swamy had told me a different story—of walking away in the middle of his thread ceremony, to the dismay of his parents and the bemusement of the priests—Subramanian grimaced: “He has given you a version, so let’s leave it at that. But my father didn’t believe in all of this.” http://caravanmagazine.in/Story.aspx?StoryID=1389&Page=1
