Shimla/IBNS: Former Indian cricket captain and current head coach Rahul Dravid is expected to participate in an event which will be organised by the country's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in poll-bound Himachal Pradesh, media reports said.
The event will be organised by the BJP's Yuva Morcha (Youth Wing) between May 12 to 15, party MLA Vishal Nehria said Monday.
BJP national president Jagat Prakash Nadda, other office bearers, Himachal Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur will be present in the event.
"The National Working Committee of BJP Yuva Morcha will be held in Dharamshala from May 12 to 15. The national leadership of BJP and the leadership of Himachal Pradesh will be involved.
"BJP National President JP Nadda, National Organisation Minister and Union Minister will also attend the session," Nehria said as quoted by NDTV.
Nehria also said Dravid's presence in the event will send a message to the youth to excel in disparate fields.
The cricket legend's presence comes ahead of the Himachal assembly elections which are due later this year.
