The Hush Post: Union sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is in Indonesia attending the 18th Asian Games at Jakarta and Palembang. But more importantly, he is seen serving food to the players happily at the Asian Games 2018.
Kapil Mishra on Monday took to Twitter to praise Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore with a picture.
On the eve of the Indian contingent’s departure, Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore asked the Indian athletes and officials to behave responsibly on and off the field during the Asian Games.
“It is a matter of great pride you (athletes) are representing the country in the Games and you have earned this privilege. When you take part in the Games and when you stay in the Games Village, you will lose your individual identity and your identity there is just one name that is ‘India’,” Rathore said at the send-off ceremony of the Indian contingent organised by the Indian Olympic Association in Delhi.
“It is a big responsibility for you. Whatever you do on the field and off the field, please remember one thing that you are representing a billion-strong nation. You have to act with responsibility. Whether it is the athletes or officials, everybody should remember this all the time,” he added.
Rathore is a silver-medalist at the Athens Olympics held in 2004 in the double-trap shooting event. At 2006 Doha Asian Games, he won a bronze medal.
