Kolkata: Mahua Moitra, the Trinamool Congress leader, was spotted kicking the ball on Tuesday as she honoured Khela Hobe Dibas. She was spotted trying to dribble the ball stylishly while holding her saree with her right hand. She was as graceful as ever in the pictures that she posted.
On Twitter, the TMC MP wrote, “Kicking it off for # KhelaHobeDibas.”
In an effort to popularise the sport, Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister, said she anticipates increased youth involvement to mark the anniversary. The TMC’s battle cry during the tense assembly elections last year, when the party overcame the BJP to seize power for a third straight term, was “Khela Hobe” (game is on).
Last year, Banerjee announced that August 16 would be observed as “Khela Hobe Dibas.” I’d like to express my heartfelt congratulations on # KhelaHobeDibas.
We anticipate more youth involvement in the event this year, given the event’s exceptional success last year. “Let this day support the enthusiasm of our young people, who are the most reliable forerunners of development,” Banerjee tweeted on Tuesday.
Football games will be held to promote sports and pay tribute to 16 football fans who died in a stampede during a football match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata in 1980.
All the party leaders have been urged to leave no stone unturned in organising programmes at every block of the state, “senior TMC leader Tapas Ray said.”
