BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has stepped up, pledging to donate Rs 50 lakh worth of rice amid the coronavirus outbreak. The former India cricket team captain will be contributing the amount to provide free rice to the needy and the underprivileged.

Ganguly along with Lal Baba Rice will provide for the needy people who have been put in government schools for safety and security, the Cricket Association of Bengal announced in a statement.

“Hope this initiative of Ganguly would encourage other citizens of the state to take up similar initiatives to serve the people of our state,” the statement from the company added.

The 1.3-billion populated India has gone into a total lockdown from midnight in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19 virus and CAB secretary Snehashis Ganguly hailed the unprecedented step.

There have been 600 confirmed cases across India and 11 reported deaths as the world’s second most populous country’s coronavirus graph was on the rise.

PM Narendra Modi, in his address on March 24, announced a nationwide lockdown for 21 days, in a bid to contain the transmission of the coronavirus. He also announced the allocation of Rs 15,000 crore towards providing necessary facilities and protective equipment to all healthcare professionals who are involved in the treatment of COVID-19 affected patients.

Earlier, Sourav Ganguly offers the indoor facility and the players dormitory of Eden Gardens to the government. He said that the government can convert the stadium into temporary medical centers amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The board also added that it hopes Dada’s contribution would encourage others to come forward and extend their help for those in need in times of such a crisis.Earlier today, the CAB also announced a donation of Rs 25 lakh towards the State Emergency Relief Fund. Worldwide about 400,000 people have tested positive for the virus, while the toll is around 17,000. 

Sourav Ganguly  was elected as a president of the BCCI in 2019 and President of the Editorial Board with Wisden India. Before being elected as the President of BCCI, he was the President of  Association of Bengal.
