Five folks have been injured and round 60 have been arrested when supporters of East Bengal Football Club clashed with the police exterior the membership gates in Kolkata on Wednesday.
Hundreds of soccer followers had gathered there to demand that East Bengal play the Indian Super League, however the membership’s talks with the buyers, a non-public cement firm, have been deadlocked and ISL appears a distant dream.
Rival teams of followers had gathered there on Wednesday afternoon in large numbers, breaking the Covid protocol, and refused to budge when the police introduced they have to.
The police then baton-charged the gang to disperse it. The 5 have been injured throughout this time.
The incident has taken a political flip. The BJP claims the cement firm had agreed to spend money on the membership on the Chief Minister’s request and had signed a memorandum of understanding. But the phrases of the ultimate deal have been allegedly so harsh, they’d flip the membership into an extension of the corporate and officers and members would develop into outsiders.
East Bengal followers are divided on the problem. Some really feel it’s value paying the worth if it means the membership can play the ISL. Others really feel the membership should retain its unbiased identification.
East Bengal Club celebrated its centenary in 2020 and is without doubt one of the greatest golf equipment in Indian soccer together with Mohun Bagan and Mohammedan Sporting.
