PM Narendra Modi invited to watch FIFA World Cup final in Brazil
How about Prime Minister Narendra Modi enjoying the FIFA World Cup final in Brazil on July 13! If sources are to be believed, he is very much likely to be in the stadium on the D-Day.
A report in The Economic Times quoted the Ministry of External Affairs sources as saying that PM Modi has been invited by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff to watch the final of the ongoing FIFA World Cup at the Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on July 13.
If he decides to attend the final, Modi will join the likes of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping and South African Jacob Zuma who all will gather in Brazil for the 2014 BRICS summit to be held between July 15 and 17 in Fortaleza.
The summit was scheduled to be held in March but was reportedly postponed at the request of Chinese President who is a football buff and wanted to catch some action live.
Last week, PM Modi released commemorative postage stamps on the 2014 FIFA World Cup and hoped that the international event becomes a “bridge for connecting nations”.
Releasing the stamps at his residence on June 12, Modi said, “Sports brings about a spirit of amity and belongingness among nations of the world. May the FIFA World Cup become a bridge for connecting nations together!”
PM Modi also underlined the need for inculcating the love of sports among children within the country with his slogan “jo khele, wo hi khile” (the kids who play grow well).
