Haryana Sports Minister is asking Manu Bhaker for the apology for all the controversy she created in recent time on price money that was not given to her and also want her to focus on her sport. All this controversy started when Manu Bhaker tried to remind Haryana Govt. about the winning price promised at the time she won the gold medal at Youth Olympic Games. The amount she was promised to be awarded with is 2 crore.

On the defensive, Anil Avij tweeted that Bhaker should have come to the sports department before going public. “Manu Bhaker should have first confirmed it from the Sports Deptt. before going to public domain. It is disgusting to denounce a State Govt which is giving highest awards in the Country. Bhaker will will will get 2 crores as tweated by me and as per notification at that time (sic),” he said.

As per the state government’s changed policy, which came into effect before the Youth Olympics, Rs 2 crore was marked for the gold medallists, Rs 1.25 crore for silver medallists and Rs 80 lakh for the bronze winners. Before that, the YOG medallists would get Rs 10 lakh, Rs 7.5 lakh and Rs 5 lakh in descending order.

However, the government again revised its policy last December and brought the amount down to Rs 1 crore for gold, Rs 65 lakh for silver and Rs 40 lakh for the bronze medallists.

Bhaker’s father Ram Kishan Bhaker, who is a chief engineer in the Merchant Navy, said moves such as this can break the morale of athletes.
