Yes, what you read is absolutely correct. After getting nominated to Rajya Sabha, Sachin Tendulkar made an effort to speak for the first time in five years. He wanted to reach out to the public about sports and their necessity in our daily lives. As usual, the members of parliament, especially form the Indian National Congress party did not allow Sachin to even utter a single word. The Parliament session was adjourned abruptly.
But Sachin had found another way to reach to the public. He conveyed his message using ‘Facebook Live’ to millions of people. In his speech, he stated that ‘India should progress from a sport loving nation to sport playing nation. There are a number of benefits of playing sports both mentally and physically. Playing sports gave me freedom and helped me in achieving my goal.’
Meanwhile, the netizens lashed out at the Indian National Congress party for disrupting the parliament session and not allowing Sachin to speak. Few have expressed that the act of Congress shows is a clear sign of disrespecting a cricketing legend like Sachin Tendulkar.
On a lighter note, few people on Twitter and other social networking sites said: ‘Sachin Duck out in his second innings’, ‘The match has been suspended due to bad weather’, ‘This shows Congress is anti-Hindu Gods’.
