Trying to clear the air about him joining politics ahead of West Bengal assembly polls next year, former Indian skipper and Board of Control for Cricket in India President Sourav Ganguly on Monday stated he went to meet the state's Governor upon invitation.
"If the Governor wants to meet you, you have to meet him. So let us keep it like that," said Ganguly.
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Sunday met Ganguly to discuss various issues and agreed to visit Eden Gardens on his invitation.
"Had interaction with 'Dada' Saurav Ganguly, BCCI president at Raj Bhawan yesterday at 4.30 pm on varied issues. Accepted his offer for a visit to Eden Gardens, the oldest cricket ground in the country established in 1864," tweeted the Governor.
Earlier in the day, he also visited the Swaminarayan Temple in the Bishnupur area of the South 24 Parganas district and prayed for peace and harmony of the people of West Bengal.
"Prayed for peace, harmony and love for people of the State at Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Joka at 11.30 am," Dhankhar said in another tweet.
