Ranchi:

Jharkhand has announced 50 rupees each to hockey players Salima Tete and Nikki Pradhan for their stellar performance at the Tokyo Olympics, Chief Minister Hemant Soren said.

The medal may have been elusive, but the way the Indian women’s hockey team fought the Great Britain team in the bronze medal match is commendable, Soren said.

The women’s hockey team’s dream of securing their first Olympic medal was unfulfilled as they lost 3-4 to Great Britain in a close bronze tiebreaker, but the brave team managed to record their best result at the Tokyo Olympics. .

“I salute the entire Indian women’s hockey team … For the best performance of the daughters of Jharkhand, the government will modify its previous decision to give and provide Rs 50 lakh each to the female hockey players of Jharkhand,” Soren said.

Salima Tete (19) from Simdega district of the state and Nikki Pradhan (27) from Khunti were part of the women’s hockey team that made history in Tokyo that same day.

Jharkhand had stated before the start of the Olympics that Rs 2 crore will be awarded to state players for winning gold, Rs 1 crore for winning silver and Rs 50 lakh for winning bronze.

Hemant Soren said that although the team failed to win bronze, their stellar performance has won hearts and the state government will turn players’ ancestral mud houses into pucca houses.

He said the two daughters of Jharkhand made wonderful contributions to the women’s hockey team.

Mr. Soren promised to make every possible facility available for players to hone their skills for future games.

While Great Britain rallied to win the match 4-3, the Indian team’s efforts in Tokyo were widely applauded for not giving up throughout the game.
