Patna, February 22: Senior BJP leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Friday said the cricket is not an Indian game, and kabaddi and football should be promoted.

"Cricket is not an Indian game, it came from England. Most of the countries playing cricket were once colonies of England. There is a need to promote kabaddi and football," Modi said after inaugurating the 64th National School Kabaddi Championship here. He stressed the need to encourage students to play kabaddi. "Students and youths can play kabaddi with zero investment unlike cricket," he said. Javed Miandad vs Sourav Ganguly: Former Pakistan Captain Takes a Dig At Dada for Asking India to Boycott ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Tie.
