PTF rules out shifting Davis Cup venue Vs India

Not bilateral Centre can’t have say on India vs Pakistan Davis Cup tie says Sports Minister Rijiju

The Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports, Kiren Rijiju has said that an isolated stand can not be taken when it comes to multilateral events organised by worldwide bodies. While speaking to ANI, Kiren Rijiju said, "Any bilateral match with Pak will have to get clearance from government but if it's a multilateral event organised by worldwide bodies then we can't take our own isolated stand". "AITA has clearly stated to government and players that ITF has taken full responsibility for safety", Chatterjee said in the letter written to ITF.

After the Indian government scrapped the special status accorded to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the developments have kept the AITA officials and players anxious.

His remarks came after All India Tennis Association's (AITA) decision to travel to Pakistan to take part in the upcoming Davis Cup.

"We're aware that you had done a safety check before diplomatic ties were downgraded (by Pakistan)". That is why there is a doubt about India's participation in the Davis Cup to be held in Pakistan.

"I am hopeful they will shift the tie because Pakistan is used to playing in neutral venues", Mahajan said. "But Davis Cup is not a bilateral and is organised by a world sporting body", Rijiju said on the sidelines of an event of the ministry of youth affairs", Kiren Rijiju was reported saying by TOI.

Chatterjee had added that the AITA is also gathering information from the players for the visa application of Pakistan.

India's two-day match against Pakistan is scheduled to be played in the Pakistani capital from September 14.

Prajnesh Gunneswaran, Ramkumar Ramanathan, Saketh Myneni, Rohan Bopanna, Divij Sharan and Sasi Kumar Mukund have all been named in the lineup.

However, the tennis team is set to rise through the political tensions that cloud the two team's relationships and will become the first Indian Davis Cup team to play in Pakistan since 1964. Pakistan is yet to announce its team.

The Indian cricket team had last toured Pakistan in 2007, and after that, no team across any sport has toured Pakistan.
