An activist who is BJP member has told that Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli was paid some Rs 47.19 lakh in June 2015 from those funds which were of victims of the fatal 2013 Kedarnath floods to appear in 60-second tourism video. The cricketer was recruited as the brand ambassador of Uttarakhand during that time.
On this charge media advisor to Harish Rawat, Surendra Kumar said that tourism creates the strength to the state’s economy and it has nothing wrong in this if a known person is selected to promote the state’s destinations.
