Sports Minister Col Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is most famous for winning a silver in the Double Trap at 2004 Athens Olympics. The famous sportsman is very active on Twitter and keeps posting encouraging messages for India’s future athletes and champions. In July 2018, Col Rathore spoke about the importance of athletes, not the authorities. With his strong insights, the Sports Authority of India (SAI) was renamed to ‘Sports India’.

Upon renaming Sports Authority of India, Col Rathore stressed, saying,

“There are many who will read beyond headlines and focus on the work that gets put in to address even the most minute of concerns for our sportsmen. Why should any officer even flaunt ‘authority’ which he or she doesn’t have?”




In the ongoing Asian Games, the Indian team has won 37 medals so far. They are currently celebrating seven gold medals, 20 silver medals, and 10 bronze medals, and the minister has been closely following them. Let’s see what he’s been posting!

Col Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is particularly proud of Sania Nehwal as we can see:



He also congratulated Indian athlete Dutte Chand for her silver in the 100 meters race:



For Col Rathore, encouragement is the key to appreciation! He not only feels proud but shares his emotions too:



On the eve of the Indian contingent’s departure, Col  Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore asked them to behave responsibly on and off the field during the games:



It was his utter joy when Tajinder Singh who won gold at the shot put event, made his country proud. Col Rathore tweeted:



He didn’t stop there. He even shared a video of Tajinder Singh’s golden moment:



Recently on Rakhi, he addressed the Indian contingent with his (usual) motivational talk:



Once again, Col Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has won hearts. The minister made a sweet gesture during the ongoing Asian Games which has come to light.



Col Rathore, who represents the Jaipur rural constituency, has gone viral on Twitter for a particular picture. Dressed in a formal suit, he’s seen serving tea to an amused Indian contingent in what looks like a dining hall.



Col Rathore’s heartwarming gesture won so many appraisers. One was Kapil Mishra, an MLA who applauded his gesture on Twitter:



Well, this isn’t the first time that the Colonel has stepped out of the ministerial mode! Rajyavardhan Rathore was the first to kick-start the Fit-India challenge. He had challenged cricketer Virat Kohli, actor Hrithik Roshan and badminton player Saina Nehwal to join in.





Hats off to this ex-army man who keeps inspiring Indians with all his encouragement and tweets (of course).
