Team India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja recently recalled his first-ever meeting with Indian Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi.
In a video shared by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) on Twitter, Jadeja said he first met Modi in 2010, when the latter was the CM of Gujarat. Dhoni introduced Jadeja to the Chief Minister.
“I first met him in 2010 in Ahmedabad. He was Gujarat’s CM. We had a game against South Africa at the Motera Stadium and MS Dhoni was the captain. He introduced me to Mr Narendra Modi,” said Jadeja.
“He responded by saying, Ye to apna ladka hai, dhyaan rakhna’. He said funnily. It was good to hear those words from a big name like him. It was a different feeling, and it felt nice.”
Notably, Jadeja’s wife, Rivaba, is contesting the Gujarat Assembly Election on a BJP ticket. She has been fielded from the Jamnagar North Assembly constituency.
