WOMEN WRESTLING SEEKS SUPPORT FROM ‘BEING HUMAN FOUNDATION’
On one hand, Punjab government talks about encouraging sports, and on the other hand because of the policies of the state government, some sports are on the verge of dying. The sport that has been affected the most is the women wrestling arena viz. ‘Baba Sheikh Fareed Kushti Akhara’ situated at Moga. Presently approx 100 girls have been undergoing free training. Firstly, government have allotted them with 20 candidates’ quota, but on the present time they have been training around 100 girls for the same. As the current administration is unable to run the arena because of shortage of the economy, the candidates seeks help from the state government, as well as Salman Khan’s ‘Being Human foundation’. Most of the candidates of this arena have also worked in the Bollywood movies like ‘Dangal’ and ‘Sultan’.
