In order to justify a Rs 89 lakh junket for six legislators to witness the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has slammed Sachin Tendulkar. Parrikar on Thursday firmly backed his decision to send only ruling party politicians to the World Cup on the international junket.
Parrikar gave the Tendulkar analogy subsequently, while defending his decision to send only politicians. They, according to him, are the potential organisers of international events and not Goan footballing legends and coaches.
He said, “Sachin Tendulkar is a good player, but he could not become a good captain. Organisation is a different ball game”.
Parrikar emphasized that ministers can be given responsibility for organising mega sporting events and not the players “because no one would listen to them”. Tendulkar, who retired from all forms of cricket recently, is one of the world’s greatest cricketers. Tendulkar was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, for his services rendered in the field of cricket.
