Asian Games medalist Divya Kakran lashes out at Arvind Kejriwal

Wrestler Divya Kakran, who won a bronze medal for the country at the recently-concluded Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, has lashed out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government.

Divya told Kejriwal that she could have won gold at the Games with proper support from the government.

“You’ve gathered us today to congratulate us but there’s no support provided when we need it most. If we’re given that support at the right time then we can even win gold,” Divya said.

“I’d won a medal at the Commonwealth Games (in Gold Coast, Australia, earlier this year) and you had told me that I will receive more help going forward. But not even my phone calls were answered,” Kakran told Kejriwal.

Divya had reportedly submitted a written request to the Chief Minister’s Office seeking help, but got no response.
