Kolkata: Couple of weeks back XtraTime broke the news that India’s one of the best referee Pranjal Banerjee was planing to leave the country as he didn’t have any job security. Both the Central and the State Government refused to take any initiative to provide him any permanent job. Pranjal has been regarded as Asia’s one of the best referees and he is the face of India referring right now. Presently in Taiwan right now and he is conducting matches in an International tournament. Brazil, Argentina and many other big teams are playing in this tournament with their U-23 team right now. Pranjal is the only Indian referee who has been chosen to conduct matches in this grand tournament. He was also the main referee of the match between Italy and Russia which was played on Monday.
He has given the nation a lot of proud moments throughout his referring career, but on the other hand he had no job security. Hence he made up his mind of leaving the country and to settle with a job in New Zealand which was made public a couple of weeks back by XtraTime.
After listening to this matter, the current M.L.A of West Bengal and renowned footballer Dipyendu Biswas extended his helping hand for Pranjal. Earlier Pranjal too had a chat with Dipyendu few months back. According to Dipyendu,” I have personally talked with Boby Hakim regarding this matter. We are trying our level best to give a permanent job to Pranjal and a lim=nesman too.”
After listening this news from www.xtratime.in Pranjal said,” I will be officiating the match between Ireland vs Taiwan. I am thankful to XtraTime as they stand beside me during my tough time. I am still waiting for the official confirmation, as they haven’t told anything to me regarding this matter. I love my country and my state very much, if this thing happens I won’t leave India. I can continue my job as a referee too if the government provide me a permanent job.”
