Srinagar/ Nov 8: Inspector General of police (IGP) traffic Basant Rath slammed Indian cricketer Virat Kohli for his comment to a cricket fan.
Suggesting the cricketer to ‘keep his patriotism to himself’ the IGP lashed Kohli on saying that those who admired cricketers from other countries should leave India.
IGP Rath tweeted, “Dear Virat Kohli, I love Javed Miandad. You please keep your cricket patriotism to yourself. And to your advertisement contracts.”
Virat Kohli was caught in a controversy after a video footage on social media made rounds in which the captain read out mean messages addressed to him by fans. Kohli responded to a comment saying, “those who prefer English and Australian batsmen should not live in India.”
The comment in which the user called Kohli an “Over-rated batsman” read that English and Australian batsmen were worth watching than Indians.
Kohli, in retaliation said, “Okay, I don’t think you should live in India then… you should go and live somewhere else, no? Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me but I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right.”
