Enough with calls, Rahul tells Modi

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has reacted sharply to media reports that some of India’s athletes – including those who won medals at the Tokyo Olympics – have yet to receive cash rewards promised for medals won at other competitive meets – such as the 2018 Asian Games.

Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul wrote, “Players should get their dues along with congratulations, not cuts in the sports budget. Enough of video of phone calls, now hand out the amount of rewards.”

In the tweets shared by Rahul Gandhi, Neeraj Chopra, and Bajrang Punia are urging the Haryana government and authorities to fulfill the promise of rewards for athletes after winning medals.
