Former Cricketer and two-time BJP MP Chetan Chauhan was recently appointed as the chairman of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT).


India’s former opening batsman was honored to get the post and didn’t forget to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah for the opportunity.




While the 68-year-old was more than pleased to get the great opportunity, many questioned the fact that how could a person who has so much on his plate take on one more responsibility and that too of an educational institute not related to his career.

It must be noted Chauhan already is the vice-president of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), is a senior BCCI official and runs a cricket academy besides owning a newsprint business.

But when questioned, Chauhan quickly brushed them off saying that he will “have time for all his roles”.

That might be true for a man who has played 40 Tests and got 11,000-plus first-class runs under his belt, but when it comes to Twitteraties, they just can’t stop laughing at the news.
