Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori today inaugurated the graffiti of ace shuttlers Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu at Hans Raj Stadium here. The graffiti are being touted as the biggest-ever in any badminton stadium.
The Deputy Commissioner said the graffiti would not only motivate girls, but also inspire budding players to achieve new feats in the field of sports. The initiative has been taken under the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ programme. Deputy Commissioner Thori lauded the Olympian Dipankar Bhattacharjee Academy for its decision to offer free coaching to the deserving children from the BPL families.

In their tweets, both ace shuttlers thanked the administration for their graffiti and wished for the success of the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ programme in the district.
He said since badminton was an expensive game, those from BPL families who would pass the trials would be imparted free training.
On the occasion, the Deputy Commissioner handed over corona warrior certificates to 30 trainees of the academy, who have been discharging their duties non-stop since Unlock-1.
