The year 2019 has been very hard and difficult for BJP as well as for our country India too. We lost our best leaders of the country in a short period of time from Atal bihari vajpai to Arun jaitely .
Arun jaitley died recently on 24th of august. This was huge shocking news for many people.
But after 3 days, government made an announcement which is a great tribute to our honorable minister.
Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) on Tuesday decided to rename Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium as Arun Jaitley Stadium in the memory of its former president.
The name will be changed on September 12 at a function where a stand at the Kotla will be named after India captain Virat Kohli as announced earlier.
Speaking on this initiative, DDCA president Rajat Sharma said: “It was Arun Jaitley’s support and encouragement that players like Virat Kohli, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Ashish Nehra, Rishabh Pant and many others could make India proud.”
Jaitley, during his position in DDCA, has done a lot of improvement in the stadium such as renovating the stadium into a modern facility, increasing its capacity to accommodate more fans and etc.
The function will be held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium with the presence of Home Minister Amit Shah and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju.
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir had asked Lt Governor Anil Baijal to rename the Yamuna Sports Complex in Delhi after former finance minister Arun Jaitley.
The purpose behind renaming is recognition of his contribution towards nation-building and his love for cricket.
