“Once all the state governments concern give their comments and views, especially with regard to security, then we will take a view,” he added.
Organisers of the Indian Premier League (IPL) held a series of meetings on Monday and submitted a re-revised tournament schedule to the Union Home Ministry on Tuesday.
