Amid ongoing Maldives issue, veteran Indian pacer Mohammed Shami has expressed his support for Indian tourism. The speedster encouraged fellow citizens to explore the beauty of the Indian beaches.
“We should promote our tourism. No matter which way the country moves forward, it is good for everyone. PM is trying to make our country move forward so we should also support it,” said Shami during a recent interview.
The development came amid the row over a remark made by a Maldives minister, leaders and other public figures after PM Narendra Modi visited the union territory of Lakshadweep.
Apart from Shami, many Indian sportspersons came forward to slam the ‘racist’ remarks against India by public figures in the Maldives. Moreover, they also encouraged fellow citizens to explore the beauty of the Indian beaches.
