Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Sunday appointed Indian batsman Rishabh Pant as the state brand ambassador.
Taking to his Twitter, the Chief Minister wrote in Hindi, “One of the best cricket players of India and an idol of youth, Rishabh Pant of Uttarakhand has been appointed by our government as State Brand Ambassador to encourage the youth of the state towards sports and public health.”
The Indian cricketer has vowed to give his best in promoting sports and general health among the people of Uttarakhand.
“Thank you @pushkardhami sir for giving me the opportunity to be the Brand Ambassador of promoting Sports and General Health among the people of Uttarakhand. I’ll do my best to spread this message and feel happy that you are taking these steps towards a fitter India,” Pant said in a tweet.
“Coming from a small town of Roorkee, I am confident that the people here have the ability to make the country proud in various fields of life,” he added.
Rishabh Pant was last seen in India’s T20 series again to encourage Men in Blue to clinch the series with a 3-0 victory.
Currently, Pant is in Johannesburg, South Africa, as the Indian Test squad will be locking horns with Proteas in the three-match Test series. The first test match begins on December 26.
