Cricket fans are clear about their next choice for India's Prime Minister. They want Rahul Dravid as their PM, no matter how the current PM is doing.
Social media couldn't stop bowing down to the former India skipper Dravid, who won hearts after his wonderful gesture. The India U-19 coach had refused to take extra credit or money for the India Under-19 team's World Cup win.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had announced cash rewards for Head Coach India U19 Dravid – INR 50 lakhs, team members (Rs 30 lakh) and coaching staff (Rs 20 lakh).
Dravid wasn't pleased with it and had proposed an equal pay for the coaching staff. BCCI accepted it and has now announced that every member of the coaching staff, including the coach, will receive Rs 25 lakh.
Twitter applauded the voice raised by Dravid and they asked the former India cricketer to lead the country as well.
Here are the tweets:
Can we please just elect Dravid to the post of PM?— VISHAL DADLANI (@VishalDadlani) February 25, 2018
I know it sounds silly, but this is the kind of person India needs. Someone who cares for others. Everything else can be learnt, but decency & kindness come from within.
