Indian athletes created history by performing brilliantly in the Tokyo Paralympics that concluded this month. Para athletes of India had won 19 medals in this Maha Kumbh of the Games, out of which five were gold medals. Many players got emotional while interacting with the Prime Minister. These athletes said that to date no one has given such an honor.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted about his meeting with Indian para-athletes on September 11 and said, "Tomorrow on September 12, I will have a conversation with the champions who made the entire nation proud in Tokyo." The PM further said that tomorrow, September 12 at 11 am, definitely watch the interesting conversation with the para-athletes.
Haven't got such respect to date
Several para-athletes got very emotional during their meeting with the Prime Minister. Boosting their morale, PM Modi said that you people have worked very hard. During this, the players said that you have taken our game to the people in five days, no Prime Minister of the country has done this to date. At the same time, the athletes who missed the medal in the Paralympics made a promise to the Prime Minister that the next time he meets AAP, the medal will also be with him. The PM said that stubbornness has its own importance, this time do not let it become a burden, which was lacking.
Organizing workshop for disabled players
Talking about the disabled athletes, the Prime Minister said, it is more difficult to coach para sportspersons, as they are different from the common players in terms of physical ability as well as mental. Workshops should be organized for such players.
