"In 2020, the state government had given an award. However, nobody seemed to be aware that a boy from our village had participated in the Commonwealth Games. Earlier, even the state's sports minister seemed unaware. Now, the medal has been brought everyone here. Now we need government support also," said Alok Sheuli. He said that with brother winning a medal, many people began to arrive. However, earlier even their calls were ignored, the star athlete's brother said. "We tried reaching out to the minister. I think his assistant must have received our call but nothing happened. We are yet to see how much money they will give for it," he added.
