Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited the Indian contingent that took part in the Tokyo Olympics as special guests for the Independence Day ceremony at the Red Fort on August 15.
The Prime Minister will also meet the contingent and greet them on the occasion. He will also personally meet with the athletes and interact with all of them around that time.
Modi will also invite all the athletes who are part of the contingent over to his residence and have an interaction with them.
Wishing the luck good luck, Modi had held a virtual interactive session with iconic boxer MC Mary Kom, badminton ace PV Sindhu, talented shooters Saurabh Chaudhary, Elavenil Valarivan and veteran table tennis player A Sharath Kamal before they left for Tokyo.
“There is a rising spirit of self-confidence in India and we are seeing glimpses of this at #Tokyo2020, where our athletes are putting up spirited performances and making 130 crore Indians proud” he tweeted.
