Kohli and Jaitley are inspirational figures: Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore

New Delhi , Sept 12 : Former Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore on Thursday said that former Union Minister late Arun Jaitley and India skipper Virat Kohli are inspirational figures.

"It is a happy occasion that Feroz Shak Kotla stadium is being named after Arun Jaitley. He had a great passion for sports, especially cricket. He knew about every player. He contributed a lot to DDCA and I am happy that the stadium is being renamed after him," Rathore told reporters here.

"Also, a stand will be unveiled, which is named after a legendary cricketer, who is the current India team captain. For this also I congratulate DDCA (Delhi and District Cricket Association). They both are inspirational figures in some or the other way to all of us. I am very happy to be present here. I wish Virat and the Indian sports the very best," he added.

Former India player Ajay Jadeja also came to attend the event and called Kohli a 'special player.'

"He is a special player and special things will happen. His last a few years have been phenomenal. So it is nice to see somebody being recognised while he is still playing," added Jadeja.

Jadeja further said "His (Jaitley) contribution is well known .... He did not only look at Delhi cricketers. For him, cricket was important whether it is a Delhi cricketer or any Indian cricketer."
