General News PM Cheers Up Mithali Raj & Girls in Mann Ki Baat, Says You've Won the Country's Heart

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the India women's cricket team for their scintillating show at the recently-concluded ICC Women's World Cup 2017, in his latest edition of 'Mann Ki Baat' on Sunday.

Mithaji Raj and Co missed on the historic title by just a whisker as they succumbed to a 9-run loss to hosts England in the final of the competition at Lord's. However, PM Modi feels that the Indian women's team may have lost the cup they managed to win the hearts of 125 crore people.

"Our women cricketers did us proud at the recently-concluded Women’s World Cup. I got a chance to meet them this week and I felt really nice talking to them. But I sensed that they felt really bad for not winning the World Cup. They looked tense. But I told them about my own assessment that this is a media driven world and expectations from players are hyped manifold. And when these expectations aren’t met, they turn in aggression. We have seem many instances where if our team loses, the whole country is enraged. Infact, what hurts the most is when few people cross their limits and go on to say and write very shameful things," Modi said in his 'Mann Ki Baat'.

"But this is the first instance when the country stood together with our team when they couldn’t lift the title. Not just this, but the entire nation lauded the performance of these athletes as well. I see this as a pleasant change. And I also told them that they are lucky to have this kind of support. It doesn’t matter that you couldn’t win the title as you have won the hearts of 125 Cr people," Modi added.

Earlier, PM Modi had met the Women cricketers in capital after they returned from England. Modi also posted photos of him meeting each team member individually and also wrote special messages for everyone.
