Jammu, September 13: Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council ‘having not congratulated’ Kuldeep Handoo for winning prestigious Dronacharya Award has not gone well with the sports fraternity.
Hitting out at Council for not even putting out a social media post about Kuldeep’s achievement, Ranjeet Kalra, a known sports administrator, asked if Dronacharya wasn’t an award worth congratulating for them.
“Who is operating social media handles of J&K Sports Council? They haven’t even bothered to inform the followers about Kuldeep Handoo winning the Dronacharya award, let alone congratulating him,” Kalra wrote in the Sports Community group.
Kalra further said that from governor administration to people, all congratulated Handoo except from Council.
“From LG (Lieutenant Governor) to common men on the streers have congratulated Kuldeep Handoo. But the Council seems very busy in engineering wing,” Kalra said.
Handoo, a Wushu coach, became the first from J&K to receive the Dronacharya Award for his excellence in the sport last month.
