CWG medalist seeks support from Kejriwal, says never got any support from Delhi government despite being in city for 20 years

Wrestler Divya Kakran, who won a bronze medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Games, on Sunday tweeted that despite practicing and living in Delhi for the past 20 years, she had never been awarded any money by the state government, nor has she received any help till date.
“I thank the honourable Chief Minister from the bottom of my heart for congratulating me. For the past 20 years, I have lived and practiced wrestling in Delhi but till now, I have not been awarded any money or received any help from the state government,” she tweeted.
“It is my request that you honour me just the way you honour other players, who despite being from Delhi play for a different state,” she added.
Responding to the tweet, Aam Aadmi Party national spokesperson, Saurabh Bharadwaj, said “The whole country is proud of you, sister. But I can’t remember that you played for the state of Delhi. You have always played for Uttar Pradesh. But a player belongs to the country. You do not expect any awards from Yogi Adityanath ji. I am sure the Delhi CM will listen to you.”
Responding to Kakran’s tweet, an official statement from the Delhi government spokesperson said, “The Delhi government respects all sportspersons in the country and wish for a bright future for them. Divya Kakran plays for Uttar Pradesh at the moment. If she has played on behalf of Delhi, or has been part of any sports scheme in Delhi or has applied for any such scheme, the state government will certainly look into what she has said.”
