Speaking with reporters, Pradyot said, "I am a football lover and used to play football myself. I saw his free kick on Facebook. The Jamatia and Darlong communities have many talented individuals, and the Tiprasa people excel in football. So, I came here to motivate him and brought football equipment, and boots, and also provided some financial aid. He also needs a good diet to stay physically fit as a player. I did this on my own initiative, not on behalf of TTAADC or the state government. My father was also a football enthusiast. We should step forward to help people, leaving politics aside."
