It is pretty common to see political leaders participating in sports events and further trying their hands at various sports in public gatherings. However, not everyday you see a female politician engaging in such activities, that too in an ethnic attire! Though breaking the stereotype, it was Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra who did not hold back from showing off her football skills as she participated in a football match this weekend. Known for her bold statements and dynamic personality, Moitra recently took to her Twitter handle and shared a couple of pictures of her playing football in a saree amid loud cheers and claps.
It was during the Krishnanagar MP Cup Tournament 2022 when the TMC MP took part in the final match. While taking to Twitter, she shared two different pictures, out of which, in one she can be seen kicking the football, while in another she plays the role of a goalkeeper as audiences watched over. She captioned the post with “Fun moments from the final of the Krishnanagar MP Cup Tournament 2022. And yes, I play in a saree.” The tweet has so far garnered over 11k likes and several retweets.
