it is a personal relation, not a political one.
At the time of the IPL launch, Modi was at the peak of his powers in Rajasthan. Sources said Modi’s phenomenal rise in cricket is in part owing to his proximity to former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, who is from the Gwalior royal family. Modi’s ties with the Gwalior royals go back a long way — his grandmother and Raje’s mother were close friends.

if you insist that modi was close to bjp you will have a VERY hard time explaining how the congress and allies controlled BCCI(led by sharad pawar from congress ally NCP) gave a whole lot of power to modi to run the IPL !
you should also explain why the new franchises were allotted to cities in congress and communist ruled states and not in bjp model state gujrat.

as I said earlier,
is limited to personal relations with the politicians than anything else.

lastly, do you really want to discuss India's murky politics in this thread ?
