CWG medalist Divya Kakran hits back at AAP again, tells its MLA: ‘Played for Delhi from 2011-2017’

Wrestler Divya Kakran, who bagged a bronze medal in the recently concluded Commonwealth Games, tweeted on Tuesday that she played for Delhi from 2011 to 2017. Kakran was responding to Aam Aadmi Party national spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj’s comment on Sunday that she had not played for Delhi and had represented Uttar Pradesh.
In her tweet on Tuesday, Kakran said: “I played for Delhi from 2011 to 2017. Here’s the certificate from Delhi State!
If you still don’t believe this, should I upload certificates of 17 golds from Delhi State”. She uploaded a picture of a certificate from the Wrestling Federation of India from June 2019, which stated that she represented Delhi in freestyle and Greco Roman style, and the 19th Female Senior National Wrestling Championship held at Nandini Nagar, Gonda, Uttar Pradesh from October 23 to 25, 2016, in the 63-kg weight category.
On Sunday, Kakran had tweeted: “I thank the honourable Chief Minister from the bottom of my heart for congratulating me. I have been living in Delhi for the past 20 years and have been training here but till now I have not been awarded any money or received any help from the State government. It is my request that you honour me the way you honour players from Delhi who represent other States.” She was reacting to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal congratulating her for the latest win.
In response to her tweet on Sunday, Bharadwaj had said that she has always represented Uttar Pradesh and he does not remember her having played for Delhi. He went on to post pictures of news articles which said that Kakran represents Uttar Pradesh.
