New Delhi, July 20: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to interact with the Indian contingent bound for the Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 on Wednesday via video conferencing.
Prime Minister's interaction is a part of his continuous endeavour to motivate athletes ahead of their participation in major sporting events.
