The wrestler Bajrang Poonia is cheated by the reduction in the prize money of athletes organized by the Haryana Government. Not only did he criticize this policy of the government, but he also advised to consider changing his policy, in strict tone. Women's wrestler Vinesh Phogat also has her support. He said that no player is happy with policies of the Haryana Government.
Wrestler Poonia, who won the country's highest level medal in the 65 kg weight category, tweeted, "If the player brings medal for the country, then it will win the country. It is not attained by one day's hard work and penance. Do not hurt the mentality and self esteem by cutting the amount of the players received. I request my government to think again about this decision. '
Bajrang told that he has come to 2.25 crore (1.5 crore ago and 75 lakh now) in his account, while this amount should have been 30 million. On this he was told that the full prize money will be given for the biggest medal of the year, after which there will be 50% cut on the second medal and 25% on the third medal. And after that if someone wins a medal, no prize money will be found on that medal.
