India’s top sports stars have lashed out at the government for not rewarding them in what is a further signal of India’s continued negligence and little investment to excel in sports.
Iconic billiards player Pankaj Advani, often referred to as the golden boy, isn’t pleased with not getting awarded the highest civilian honour, the Padma Bhushan, for the second time in a row.
When sports minister Vijay Goel offered his best wishes to Advani for winning the National Billiards Championship of 2017, the 16-time world title winner used the opportunity to let the world know about this.
Thank you sir. Just feel after 16 world titles and 2 Asian games golds if I’m ignored for a padma bhushan, don’t know what more I need to do https://t.co/kI1pmFL0M9
