I hope LPU will send students to the Indian Cricket team also! “He further captioned, “India needs 10 more LPUs. Best of luck to the 11 LPU students who are representing India at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. Truly, a great achievement!” In another post he has urged all Indians: “Let’s come together and support all our athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics.”

In fact, 11 students of LPU are part of the Indian contingent, representing the country in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. India’s men’s hockey team captain Manpreet Singh, who is also an MBA student at LPU, led the Indian contingent during the opening ceremony in Tokyo on July 23.
