Mumbai: As a part of Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) ‘Sampark for Samarthan’ campaign, former BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Friday called on film star Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan, who is also a noted film writer.

During the visit, Mr Gadkari presented to Salim Khan some booklets highlighting the achievements of the Modi government in the last four years. The meeting, which took place at Khan’s house in Bandra, lasted for 30 minutes.

“Met Sri Salim Khan ji and Salman Khan as part of ‘Sampark for Samarthan’ campaign. Have discussed the achievement and initiative of Modi government in last 4 years,” the Union minister tweeted after the meeting.

Though Salim Khan and Salman did not comment or tweet about the meeting, Mr Gadkari’s post was liked by the father-son duo.

The campaign was launched to mark the four years of Modi government last month. As many as 4,000 functionaries of the party will contact one lakh people, who are recognised names in their fields, to inform them about the government’s works during its four year tenure.
