CAB to give 13 tickets to each affiliated unit

Kolkata, Mar 19 (UNI) The CAB will give 13 tickets to each of the affiliated units, which has been accepted by the opposition for the interest of the game.

CAB president Prasun Mukherjee told reporters that 13 complimentary tickets would be allotted for each of the 121 affiliated units, and this led to an uproar as the rival group demanded the number be raised to 23.

''The president is more keen on giving away the tickets to officials and members of other associations,'' an irked former CAB assistant secretary Biswarup Dey said.

The problem is that the CAB has decided to give out 2000 complementary tickets to the Golden Crad Holders of Salt Lake Stadium and distribute 2420 tickets amongthe units and reserve the rest for other obligatory purposes.

Prasun also claimed that instead of getting the share of 665 Club house tickets as per the clause, they were now getting 1000 tickets for the members. In exchange CAB has given Red Chillies Entertainment 8400 tickets from its quota of 16400 complementary tickets.
