Hockey News: MD. Shahid’s widow upset with govt.

The family members of former Indian hockey captain Late Mohammad Shahid, have alleged that the government has forgotten the promises made to them after the demise of the hockey legend in 2016. In protest, the family has decided to return the awards conferred upon Mohammad Shahid, including Padma Shri, Arjun award and the gold medal won at Moscow Olympics in 1980. According to late the legendary player’s wife Parveen, the government had sent a letter and had made several promises such as holding a hockey tournament in the name of her husband and renaming a stadium after him. She will be travelling to New Delhi on July 20 to return the awards. She also said that the government had promised the family a gas agency or a petrol pump, but nothing has been done so far. Parveen recently organised a hockey tournament on her own expense.
