Sports Minister Vijay Goel sets a benchmark by naming stand after the martyred war legends.
The Eden Gardens in Kolkata is a standout amongst the most famous grounds to play cricket. The quality of the stadium and the charging air at the stadium amid a match will doubtlessly give a fan an experience of a life time. Despite the fact that the seating capacity of the ground has been chopped down as of late, the vibe inside the stadium is still the same.
As indicated by reports, in a novel activity, the Eden Gardens is set to devote four of its stands to martyred war heroes of Indian defense forces. The four stands will be in the names of Col NJ Nair, Lt Col Dhan Singh, PVC Sub Joginder and Hav Hanganan Dada.
Sports minister Vijay Goel affirmed the news on Twitter. Any data with respect to the date of the formal initiation of the stands has not been proclaimed.
