Nellore, Andhra Pradesh: Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was on Sunday accorded a warm welcome as he visited the tiny village of Puttamrajuvari Kandrika which he has decided to adopt under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana.
For the villagers of Puttamrajuvari Kandrika located in Gudur mandal, it was a morning with a difference, when the cricket icon and Rajya Sabha member arrived around 9 AM in their sleepy village and mingled with them.
Tendulkar was given a warm welcome by the residents of the village that was colourfully decked up. Banners and hoardings welcoming the legendary player dotted the roads leading to the village right from Gudur. (Felt Humiliated After Being Sacked as Captain: Tendulkar)
