In an unlikely collaboration, Sri Lankan parliamentarian and rugby player Namal Rajapaksa has offered coaching help to a girls’ rugby team in distant Kashmir, The Hindu reported.

Following a report by New Delhi-based World is One News on a Kashmir girls’ rugby team, Rajapaksa tweeted: “Breaking social boundaries to pursue their passion for #rugby.”

In response, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s Peoples Democratic Party tweeted, “Thank you Mr. Rajapaksa for endorsing the talent & extending a hand of support to these young rugby players. We are sure there must be many success stories in Sri Lanka too. All of us would be delighted to learn more about your country’s experiences & interventions.”

Namal Rajapaksa is in touch with the Jammu and Kashmir government and hopes to visit the Valley in May along with his coaches, his office said.
