Cheer Indian sportspersons in Olympics: Modi

New Delhi, Jul 25 (Agency) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged people to support the Indian sportspersons participating in the Tokyo Olympics by taking part in the social media campaign–’Victory Punch Campaign”. ‘On social media, our Victory Punch Campaign for the support of Olympics sportspersons has begun. Do share your Victory Punch with your team…Cheer for India,’ the Prime Minister said while addressing the 79th edition of his monthly radio broadcast – ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
