Sports News : PS impact: Haryana to revisit sports policy amendments

A ray of hope has certainly come for Haryana’s para-athletes as state’s sports minister Sandeep Singh has said that state will do the necessary corrections in the policy and the matter will be sent again to CM Manohar Lal Khattar for rethinking and changing the amendments regarding para-athletes. Earlier, Haryana’s para-athletes raised questions about its recent sports policy amendments, wherein the state government had decided to give Group B jobs to Paralympic and para Asian Games gold medal winners. As compared to this, Group A jobs will be offered to Olympic medalists and Asian Games medal winners apart from introducing differential treatment in other categories too. While the Haryana government had stated that Asian para games silver medalists will be offered Category C jobs as compared to Category B jobs offered to Asian Games medalists, there was no provision of job for national para-games winners and Commonwealth Para Games bronze medalists and paralympics and Asian para-games participants.
