'Dangal' effect: Haryana govt. to provide 100 wrestling mats for 'akhadas'
"Dangal" highlights the struggle of a wrestler father to train his daughters into international champions.
Hayana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who met wrestling champions Geeta and Babita Phogat and their coach-father Mahavir Singh Phogat, on whose lives film "Dangal" is based, to honour them, also said that his government has set up a committee led by the Chief Secretary to streamline the process of giving employment to the state's outstanding sportspersons.
He said that based on the recommendations of this committee, a new policy for sportspersons would be formulated.
Geeta and Babita are ace wrestlers who hail from Balali village in Charkhi Dadri district.
Khattar, on this occasion, also gave the first-ever "cashless Shagun" to Geeta Phogat who got married recently.
