Team India's star all-rounder Hardik Pandya expressed his concern over recent India vs Maldives and PM Narendra Modi's recent visit to Lakshadweep.
Lakshadweep has been dominating the national headlines over the last few days after PM Modi's recent visit to Island state. However, the controversy erupted after some Maldivian ministers made degrogatory and insulting remarks to PM Narendra Modi after his visit to Lakshadweep.
Taking his X handle (formerly Twitter), Hardik Pandya was unhappy about what about being said about India. All-rounder added that Lakshadweep is his next destination to visit.
Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya has not been included in India squad for the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan despite the reports of him leading the Men in Blue.
Hardik is yet to recover from ankle injury which he suffered during the ODI World Cup last year. The 30-year-old is currently following 18-week programme laid out by NCA and BCCI, with a focus of complete rehabilitation and making him fit for the T20 World Cup 2024, which slated to take place in West Indies and USA in June.
