Those are some extraordinary achievements, especially winning in the Youth Olympics, something for which she was promised ₹2 Crores by Haryana sports minister Anil Vij.

But months after not receiving her cash reward, Manu took to Twitter to inquire the minister about the same.

She also added that 'someone in Haryana is playing with that cash prize'.

Bhaker had clinched gold in the 10m air pistol at the Youth Olympics.

The minister reacted to the blame put on the government and tweeted:

While adding that she should 'focus on her game'.

As per reports, the government had lowered the amount of cash prize to ₹1 crore for gold, later.

This is not the first time something like this has happened and it reflects on the condition of sports in India. Young athletes need support from the government and keeping promises is the least it can do.
