Tiwari visited her home in Gokalpuri and said: “I’ve come to (visit) my sister… Like a brother, I will extend all support to make her excel in her field,” Tiwari said. Kakran also tied a rakhi on his wrist.
Earlier this week, responding to a congratulatory tweet by CM Arvind Kejriwal, the wrestler had said: I thank the honourable Chief Minister from the bottom of my heart for congratulating me. I have been living in Delhi for the past 20 years and have been training here but till now I have not been awarded any money or received any help from the State government. It is my request that you honour me the way you honour players from Delhi who represent other States.”
The Delhi government Thursday claimed the wrestler was provided financial assistance till 2017, the year she last played for the city.
