UP : सहारनपुर स्टेडियम के टॉयलेट रूम में खिलाड़ियों को घटिया खाना परोसा गया। स्टेट लेवल कबड्डी टूर्नामेंट के लिए UP से करीब 300 खिलाड़ी आए थे।

Moreover, the flour got kneaded in the lavatory and cooking oil was there too.
The video got thousands of views and likes with hundreds of retweets. They lashed out at the management for the incident.
Sadly this is the plight in most trains as well and food served to children under mid day meals scheme. In Bangalore too, many small eateries lack basic facilities. Worst is pani puri vendors. Realizing this, best place to have food is at home or carry lunch with u. Really sad

Nation which can not respect and give good amenities to sportspersons, can never produce good sportspersons.

An official Animesh Saxena got suspended after the video made rounds. On the other hand, he said he took the decision due to rain.
An investigation was launched. The state’s kabaddi association had organized the sub-junior girls tournament which was to be played from from 16 to 18 September. The food and stay arrangement for the players was made by the stadium staff itself.
