After Six Long Years, Finally Wrestler And Gold Medallist Geeta Phogat Gets Appointed As DSP In Haryana Police

Updated on 22 October, 2016 at 7:52 pm By

Wrestler Geeta Phogat had won India’s first gold medal in women’s wrestling in 55-kg category in Commonwealth Games back in the year 2010. What should have come the same year, has come after a long wait of six years. Finally, Geeta has received the appointment letter for the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) from the Haryana cabinet.

”We got used to waiting. Everyone is happy but we are not as happy as we should have been. While other players were appointed (as DSP) on winning gold in the same event, we were denied this for six long years,” Phogat told The Indian Express.

In spite of winning a Gold in Commonwealth and being the first Indian woman wrestler to have qualified London Olympics in 2012, Geeta had to move to Punjab and Haryana High Court to claim what was rightfully hers. Under the sports quota, she had been selected for appointment as Inspector in Haryana Police the same year of her selection in Olympics.

Yet, it wasn’t until the Court directed the Haryana government to progress her appointment that she was given what was indeed hers all this while.

“A player puts all her efforts in winning medals and a decision like this means financial security for us. I wish such things do not happen to other gold medal winners in future CWG or Asian Games,” she said.

With such cases, it becomes evident the kind of respect our country bestows on athletes who put their heart, soul and sweat in the Games and pride of the nation.
