Rahul Dravid, now the head coach of men's national team, firmly denied a report claiming that he will be participating in a BJP's Yuva Morcha meet in poll-bound state, Himachal Pradesh later this week. Dravid stated the report is 'incorrect'.
"A section of the media has reported that I will attend a meeting in Himachal Pradesh from May 12th-15th, 2022. I wish to clarify that the said report is incorrect," Rahul Dravid told news agency ANI.
Earlier in the day, Vishal Nehria, BJP MLA from Dharamsala told ANI that BJP National President JP Nadda, Union Minister along with former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid will attend the session.
"National Working Committee of BJP Yuva Morcha will be held in Dharamshala from May 12 to 15. National leadership of BJP and leadership of Himachal Pradesh will be part of this. BJP National President JP Nadda… and union minister will also attend the session," he said.
"Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid will also attend the meet. He will share talk about his journey and success, motivating the youth on how to excel not only in politics but also in other fields," Nehria added.
The BJYM (Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha) is the youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which is currently in power in Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand.
