New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday fulfilled his promise and had ice cream with two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu when he hosted the Indian athletes at his residence on Monday.
Back in July when Modi had a video interaction with many Tokyo-bound Indian athletes, he had spoken about how Sindhu was barred from having ice cream before the Rio Olympics and if she was doing the same this time around.
"Being an athlete requires a rigorous schedule and hardwork. I asked @Pvsindhu1 about her love for ice-cream and also interacted with her parents," the Prime Minister 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."
After which, Modi promised that he would have ice cream with her after the competition 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 said after the badminton player won a bronze medal in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics.
