Pawan Kalyan Gifts Commonwealth Games Winner Venkat Rahul Ragala: Never in the history of any sport – episodes, a political party singularly coming forward in honouring a sport-winner is a rare event. However, the Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan inculcated this good gesture in political parties of honouring sportsman providing encouragement on behalf of his own Janasena Party not waiting for the government’s response. For the first time ever, a political party like Janasena Party Chief quickly responded in honouring with Rs.10 lakh check – such a great winner of the world repute of sports event like ‘Commonwealth Games’ is praiseworthy.
Pawan Kalyan Gifts Commonwealth Games Winner Venkat Rahul Ragala
During the recent ‘Commonwealth Games’ – Venkat Rahul Ragala on the ‘Third Day’ of the event brought the glory to India by giving to the nation its fourth gold of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Under incredible stress, Venkat Rahul Ragala in a stiff competition with Don Opeloge who is acknowledged to have been a top ‘Weight –Lifter’ in the world so far upped the ante by hoisting 187kg but went back to pavilion when Venkat Rahul Ragala lifted 191kg on his final attempt and gained the ‘Gold’. The 21-year-old from Stuartpuram in Andhra Pradesh made the state and the nation proud with his grit.
Though there have been many ‘Gold Medal’ winners in ‘Commonwealth Games’ from India, Pawan Kalyan handpicked to honour Venkat Rahul Ragala to make people understand the mettle of Telugu speaking states and also to show as to how Telugu people are missing many opportunities who cannot afford to undergo training to prove themselves. State Governments and the Central Governments pouring gifts and awards on such winners have always been a common sight. This time, the Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan acted differently.
“Heartfelt congratulations to Sri Venkat Rahul Ragala. From Jana Sena Party, we will give him a cheque worth Rs. 10 lakh for achieving a Gold at Commonwealth Games and for making our motherland proud. We truly take pride in your outstanding achievement and JSP salutes you. Jai Hind!” Pawan said on Twitter.
Indian Lens extends its ‘KUDOS’ to Pawan Kalyan. Hope all political parties learn a lesson or two from this innovative gesture to help Indian sportsmen do better at the global level.
