KOLKATA: BCCI President and former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly held an hour-long meeting with West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Sunday, which Raj Bhavan sources described as a “courtesy call” and said there is no nothing political about it.
However, with the state assembly elections scheduled for April-May next year, it has been speculated that he could join politics.
While Ganguly did not answer questions about the reason for his visit, Dhankhar said they had a discussion on “varied topics.”
The governor also said that he accepted the invitation of the chairman of the Cricket Control Board in India (BCCI) to visit the Eden Gardens stadium here.
Raj Bhavan sources said that Ganguly’s meeting with Dhankhar has nothing to do with political developments in the state.

“I had an interaction with the president of ‘Dada’ @ SGanguly99 @BCCI in Raj Bhawan today at 4.30 pm on various topics. I accepted his offer to visit Eden Gardens, the oldest cricket ground in the country established in 1864,” tweeted the governor.
Ganguly arrived at Raj Bhavan around 4.30pm and the meeting lasted one hour.
