Cricketer Virender Sehwag has demanded the government to start a special train and plane after gymnast Dipa Karmakar and athlete Lalita Babar in order to give tribute to them for the Rio Olympics games.
“Reqst to Hon’ble @narendramodi ji & @sureshprabhu ji 2consider d following in honour of #DipaKarmakar & #LalitaBabar,” Sehwag wrote on his Twitter account.
“Everyone likes saluting the rising sun. Though our champions in Rio have not won a medal thus far for their incredible efforts and skills, the way some of them have fought against all odds has been amazing. Its important that we honour their efforts,” he added.
Dipa made history when she completed fourth in the last of the ladies' Vault occasion, passing up a great opportunity for what might have been India's first Olympic award in tumbling by 0.15 focuses.
Her exertion in the last incorporated the risky Produnova vault which has earned her across the board approval.
Lalita, then again, turned into the principal Indian competitor — male or female — to show up in the last of an Olympic track occasion in 36 years when she meet all requirements for the ladies' 3,000 meter Steeplechase.
Lalita created a daring exertion in the last on Monday to complete tenth. She was in searing structure in the qualifying round too, breaking the national record while in transit to booking a billet in the last.
Her exertion in the qualifying round is exceptionally laudable as she recoverd from a fall in the early phases of the race to lead the pack at one phase before completing fourth.
The way in which Dipa and Lalita have defeat obstacles of insufficient money, absence of offices and different issues to sparkle on the greatest stage in the realm of games have earned them honour from famous people and normal individuals alike.
“I would request Hon’ble PM Narendra Modiji to consider naming a special plane & a train after these two young athletes (even if it is a special for a few days and at the cost of not causing confusion) which in a way will encourage parents and inspire many youngsters to take up less popular sports as a career,” Sehwag asserted.
