Sania Mirza Got Furious Over Poor Facilities Offered To Junior Girls Hockey Team In Australia

Updated on 12 December, 2017 at 1:08 pm By

Few days back, there were media reports of members of girls hockey team from India on their visit to Adelaide, Australia for Pacific School Games being ill-treated. It was reported that the girls did not have access to proper transport facility and information over the playing schedule due to which they missed two matches. The girls alleged that the accompanying officials left them to fend for themselves.

It was also reported that the School Games Federation of India (SGFI) has received an amount of Rs 2.5 lakh against each player from the government and failed to provide services to the players despite the funding they got.

The matter came to light when after a three-minute video of the members of the girls hockey team went viral on social media. In the video, the girls could be seen crying. The girls also said that they now fear of getting a scolding from their parents back home since they had paid some money to SGFI for this trip.

The baffling video that went viral on social media in no time was recently shared by famed tennis player Sania Mirza. In the video, the girls can be seen confessing that they missed two matches consecutively as there were no arrangements for their transportation.

However, the Sports Authority of India, in a tweet said that Government of India hasn’t given any sanction or approval to the team and coach featured in the video. Here is the tweet:

 

 

Meanwhile, social media is offended at the poor state of affairs when it comes to facilities provided to the sportsmen in the country. As Sania Mirza shared the video on her Facebook page, a number of people, enraged over the poor state of support for sportsmen by the administration of India commented on the post. Have a look at some of the comments below:

 

 

While the authenticity of the video seems to be in doubt, considering the tweet by Sports Authority of India, but if the video is real, some strict action must be taken against those defaulting on their duties.
