Mamata calls Sourav part of her household
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday lavished praise on BCCI President-elect Sourav Ganguly, calling him "ghorer chele" (member of my household).
Expressing happiness at Ganguly getting the post at a comparatively young age, Banerjee said: "Sourav to amader ghorer chele (Sourav is a member of my household)".
Banerjee recalled the long innings Jagmohan Dalmiya - a seasoned cricket administrator from Kolkata - played in the BCCI and the ICC and said: "Sourav Ganguly has got the opportunity at this (young) age.. It's a matter of pride for Bengal".
