‘We believe the world is our family’: PM Narendra Modi replies to Kevin Pietersen


NEW DELHI: After former international cricketer Kevin Pietersen praised ‘beloved country’ India for providing COVID-19  vaccines to South Africa, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he is glad to see the former England cricketer’s affection towards India.

PM Modi also said, “We believe that the world is our family” and want to play “our role in strengthening the fight against COVID-19”.

“Glad to see your affection towards India. 🙂 We believe that the world is our family and want to play our role in strengthening the fight against COVID-19,” PM Modi wrote, replying to Pietersen’s tweet.

The former England batsman expressed his feeling on Tuesday after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar posted a picture of an aircraft that had landed with made-in-India vaccines in South Africa. “In it together. Made in India vaccines land in Johannesburg, South Africa,” Jaishankar had tweeted.

Replying to this, Pietersen had tweeted: “Indian generosity and kindness grows more and more every single day. The beloved country!”
