The Maharashtra government has dropped its plans of roping in Sachin Tendulkar as the state’s brand ambassador, tourism minister Chhagan Bhujbal said on Friday.

“The issue has closed now, it is impossible. We (government) also thought that we shouldn’t insist him (Sachin) much. He belongs to the whole country,” he said.

A few months ago, the Maharashtra Tourism Department Corporation had sent a letter to Tendulkar asking him to be the brand ambassador of the state. However, the 38-year-old cricketer did not respond to the letter, officials said.
