Speaking of the initiative, it was Arun Jaitley who supported and encouraged players. The DDCA President Rajat Sharma said:

“It was Arun Jaitley’s support and encouragement that players like Virat Kohli, Virendra Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Ashish Nehra, Rishabh Pant and many others could make India proud.”

Talking to Gautam Gambhir he said-

“It’s a good thing that the stadium is being named after Arun Jaitley, because he was instrumental in giving Delhiites a modern cricket stadium. However, I would have been much happier if this was done when he was still alive, so that he could have seen it himself. That would have been the most fitting tribute.” 

During Jaitley’s tenure, he had focused more on increasing the seating capacity for fans rather than investing on fancy changing rooms.

The function will be held at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, and will be graced by Home Minister, Amit Shah and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju.
