Suresh said, “We condemn the terror activities carried out against our army and CRPF personnel. Though CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first even before sports.”

This years World Cup is scheduled to take place in England and Wales between May 30 to July 14 and India is bound to play Pakistan on June 16 at Old Trafford.

Suresh, who along with CCI, pioneered in covering the portrait of Pakistan PM and former Captain Imran Khan from one of its restaurants in protest over the incident, said “He (Imran Khan) should respond. He is the Prime Minister and if he believes that Pakistan has no role to play in the attack then why is he not coming out openly. He should come out openly. People should know the truth. He is not coming out openly which means that there are Stains in their folds.”
