The Chief Minister felicitated and praised Siraj for displaying his amazing talent in international cricket and stood as one of the greatest players in the world of cricket.

The Chief Minister ordered the officials to allot a residential plot and a government job to Siraj. The officials have been asked to identify suitable land in Hyderabad or surrounding areas and also take steps to provide a government job to him immediately.
