Amid the speculations that the celebrated former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly could enter politics ahead of the 2021 West Bengal Assembly elections, Ganguly on Saturday held an hour-long meeting with State Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar at Raj Bhavan, Economic Times.
The meeting has been officially described as a “courtesy call” by Ganguly, who in the capacity of the chairmanship of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) extended an invitation to Governor Dhankhar to offer a visit to the oldest cricket ground in the country, Eden Gardens.
Speculations have been rife that Ganguly could soon join politics. While the details of the meeting are not known, Governor Dhankhar has shared that he and Ganguly held discussions on “varied issues”. The meeting had begun at 4.30 pm.
