On Friday, BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly hosted Union Home Minister Amit Shah for dinner at his Kolkata home.
Amit Shah attended the Ministry of Culture’s ‘Mukti-matrika’ (Freedom as Mother) cultural programme at Kolkata’s Victoria Memorial Hall before proceeding to Sourav Ganguly’s house. Dona Ganguly, Sourav Ganguly’s wife, and her troupe, Diksha Manjari, performed a dance during the show.
Sourav Ganguly had mentioned before Amit Shah’s visit to his house that he had arranged a vegetarian spread for him.
“Since 2008, I’ve known him (Shah). I collaborate with his son. He’ll be staying with us and eating dinner with us. He only eats vegetables, thus it will be vegetarian food “Ganguly stated.
Amit Shah was joined to Sourav Ganguly’s house for supper by BJP leaders Suvendu Adhikari and Amit Malviya, who were on a two-day visit to West Bengal.
According to sources, Ganguly’s family made rice, roti, Luchi, Begun bhaja, Shahi Paneer, Dal makhani, Dum aloo, Veg cutlet, kaju barfi, mishti doi, and rasgulla for the Home Minister.
