As promised, PM Narendra Modi enjoys ice cream with PV Sindhu
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi kept his promise and had ice cream with two time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu as he hosted Indian athletes at his residence on Monday.
Back in July, when PM Narendra Modi had done a video-conference with the Tokyo bound athletes, he had discussed with PV Sindhu how she was barred from having ice creams before Rio Olympics.
"Being an athlete requires a rigorous schedule and hardwork. I asked @Pvsindhu1 about her love for ice-cream and also interacted with her parents," Prime Minister Modi had tweeted.
During the interaction, Sindhu said, "Since I am preparing for the Olympics, I have to do some sort of diet control. So I don't eat ice cream so much, only once in a while."
Post that, Prime Minster Narendra Modi had promised to have an ice cream with her when the event gets concluded.
"PM encouraged her and told Sindhu that we will eat ice-cream together after returning from Tokyo. Now, she will eat ice-cream with PM," PV Ramana, Sindhu's father had told ANI after the badminton player won a bronze medal in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics.
The Indian Tokyo Olympics contingent on Monday went to 7, Lok Kalyan Marg, the official residence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to have breakfast with him.
