Teenage shooting sensation Manu Bhaker in a series of Tweets lashed out at the Haryana Government in Friday reminding them of their promise of Rs 2 crore cash award after she bagged the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games 2018.

Haryana Sports Minister Anil Vij had then tweeted: “Congratulations to Manu Bhaker for winning shooting gold in Youth Olympics.

“Haryana government will give a cash prize of Rs 2 crore to Manu Bhaker for winning this gold. Previous governments used to pay Rs 10 lakh only.”

Taking a dig at Anil Vij, Bhaker asked on Friday whether the promise of Rs 2 crore cash prize was true or just a ‘jumla’.

 

Responding to the Indian shooter’a post, Anil Vij tweeted on Saturday that Bhaker should have come to the sports department before going public.

 

“Manu Bhaker should have first confirmed it from the Sports Deptt. before going to public domain. It is disgusting to denounce a State Govt which is giving highest awards in the Country. Bhaker will will will get 2 crores as tweated by me and as per notification at that time (sic),” Vij said.

 

On Friday, Bhaker also claimed that someone in Haryana was “playing with Youth Olympic Games cash prize”.

“Some one in Haryana is really playing with Youth Olympic games cash prize!!!!! @narendramodi @mlkhattar @anilvijminister @Ra_THORe @AshokKhemka_IAS … Is it really for encouraging or disheartening players …… Please ….Let me play …,” Manu Bhaker wrote in her first Tweet.

 

” Some one in Haryana is really playing with Youth Olympic games cash prize!!!!! @narendramodi @mlkhattar @anilvijminister @Ra_THORe @AshokKhemka_IAS … Is it really for encouraging or disheartening players. which one is correct…,” Bhaker added in another Tweet.

 

“I was too young to understand this at that time .. But Today i understand what he wants to prove…. Some people want to prove thamself right even they know they are not… Bad luck ofHaryana,” Bhaker added, before concluding, “Sir Please confirm if it is correct… Or just Jumla… @anilvijminister.”

 

Earlier, speaking to news agency PTI, Manu Bhaker said her aim was to secure a quota place for the 2020 Olympics.

“My aim now is to win Olympic quota,” Bhaker said. “We saw the youth power this year, it feels really good that teenagers are doing so well and achieving their goals. We have set our goals and are working hard, it is very surprising that suddenly all of us are doing so well. I feel very nice when I see youngsters performer.”
