RIO Olympics 2016 was not that successful as far as the Indian contingent is concerned. However, Indian daughter’s PV Sindhu (Silver Medal In Women’s singles Badminton event), Sakshi Malik (Bronze Medal in Women’s Freestyle 58kg) and Dipa Karmakar (4th position in Women’s Gymnastics event) brought laurels to the nation. Doubtlessly, these athletes got whatever they deserved from the Indian Government. All things considered, the kind of success that these athletes have attained was not at all possible if their coaches were not by their side. And what the coaches are getting in return? A fake Cheque?
Yes, my friend, you heard it very right! There is no doubt in the fact that Kuldeep Malik, coach of Sakshi Malik worked extremely hard in concluding to such an achievement for the country but unfortunately, his reward ended up in a harsh deal. It followed as, during the During the felicitation ceremony in Bahadurgarh, Kuldeep was handed over with a photocopy of a cheque worth Rs. 10 lacs. It’s been over a complete month and repulsively, the coach of India women freestyle wrestling didn’t receive his amount. He tried a lot for contacting Haryana govt. as well as Railway Sports Promotion Board but he was just knocking a locked door.
On 29th August when Khel Ratna was awarded to Sakshi, Chief Ticket Inspector of Northern Railway Suresh Prabhu promised a promotion to Kuldeep Malik but no such promise has been accomplished yet. It is certainly a very discouraging activity by our Indian Government as the people who put their 100% to make their nation proud are getting absolutely nothing in return.
