Rio medallist Sakshi Malik hits out at Haryana govt for not giving her 'promised' incentives

Asking when will the government fulfill its promise, Sakshi Mallik recently took to Twitter to say that she had fulfilled her promised by winning a medal for the country but the government had to failed keep its promise. She further questioned the government asking whether the promises were only made for the “media”.

“I have fulfilled my promise of winning an Olympic medal for the country. When will the Haryana government fulfill its promise?” she said. “Announcements made by Haryana Government after my OLYMPIC MEDAL win were for MEDIA ONLY ?,” she said in a tweet while tagging BJP leader including sports minister Vijay Goel and Haryana Minister Anil Vij.

However, Haryana Minister Anil Vij refuted the allegations and have claimed that Sakshi Malik was indeed given a cheque of Rs 2.5 crore and that the government had even offered her a job as per her requirement in the MD university.
