Shiv Sena youth wing chief Aaditya Thackeray today asked badminton player Chirag Shetty, who won a gold medal in the recently-concluded Commonwealth Games, to guide students of the schools run by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.
Shetty, who won a gold in the mixed team event and a silver medal in the mens' doubles badminton tournament at the CWG in Australia, called on Thackeray today.
"I congratulate him for making our nation proud at the international level. Our country was in the third place in the CWG games. I have asked Chirag to guide students studying in BMC schools," Thackeray told reporters at his residence 'Matoshree' after meeting Shetty.
The Yuva Sena chief also said that six new sports will be introduced in the BMC schools in the coming academic year.
