J&K gymnasts win medals for Punjab Univ; Shri Ram Sena alleges 'lethargic attitude' of state govt
After fencer Pankaj Sharma, two State gymnasts, Palak and Mitali, both national champions in Rhythmic gymnastics, faced dishonour at the hands of state government.
This was alleged by State President, Shri Ram Sena, Rajiv Mahajan in a statement while congratulating Palak and Mitali for winning eleven medals for Punjab University in the recently concluded All India Inter University championships.

Thanks to the alleged 'lethargic attitude' of the State Government, aspiring players in the State are now paying a price for it, Rajiv Mahajan said.

State Government which produced several promising sportspersons, who represented the State at the international circuit, lacked facilities, he alleged.

"Government is allowing only those players close to him to flourish and other aspiring young players are not allowed to play with proper infrastructure and financial aid," Mahajan said.

"This is atrocious after spending crores of rupees of public money for the benefit of children, government is acting as a mute spectator over the felicitation of State gymnasts," he said.

"Currently State Players fight the system; infrastructure, apathy, society, finance, opportunity and only if they are standing after that can they fight an opponent," he said.

It is pertinent to mention here that Palak and Mitali, who abandoned University of Jammu due to humiliation meted out to them, have won 11 medals between them, including six gold and five silver in the recently concluded All India Inter University championships representing Punjab University.
