Indian football: Six I-League clubs write to PM Narendra Modi for intervention

Six I-League clubs, namely East Bengal, Mohun Bagan, Minerva Punjab, Aizawl FC, Gokulam Kerala and Churchill Brothers, have written to the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on Monday about the ongoing issue between the clubs and the All India Football Federation (AIFF)

The primary concern which the clubs have unanimously raised in the letter was that the AIFF, along with their commercial partners FSDL, might promote the Indian Super League (ISL) as the main league of country and simultaneously demote the I-League, which is currently India's top tier football league.
