ANI news earlier this week brought a case into limelight of Santosh, who previously won 7 gold medals in various competitions in weightlifting, but she failed to continue in the sport due to various injury issues.

ANI news’ official Twitter handler posted the tweet, where Santosh requested the Sports Ministry of this country to take action and help her by giving a government job.

“I was injured while training and had to discontinue Powerlifting. I won many championships, I want the govt should give me a job” said a dejected Santosh, as quoted by ANI news.

This tweet from ANI news grabbed the attention of Raveena and she was quick to respond. She shared the tweet posted by ANI news and tagged some big names in the country like Sushma Swaraj, Shaina NC, Maneka Gandhi so that they can know this story.

After she had tagged them, Maneka Gandhi too was quick to respond and she took this story to the notice of the Sports Minister of India, Shri Vijay Goel.

Maneka Gandhi’s tweet read, “Dear Raveena Tandon ji, we’ve requested Sports Minister Sh. Vijay Goel ji to suitably redress the case of Ms Santosh.”

Raveena again replied to Maneka Gandhi courteously. She also mentioned in that tweet that we have to protect our athletes. “Thank you ma,m. We have to support,stand by our athletes,who against all odds,bring glory to our country.” she said in her Tweet. She also mentioned a hashtag, which read “Amazing Woman of Haryana”, which was for Santosh.

Truly, that was an amazing gesture from Raveena Tandon and we all support the cause that our athletes should be protected so that they can bring more glory to the country.
