Appeal for monetary aid

Appeal for monetary aid

Two throw ball players from the taluk have found place in the national team selected to participate in the Asia Cup, scheduled to be held at Malaysia from July 7 to 10.

The selected players — Rampal and V M Karthikgowda — may leave for the coaching camp next month, but their financial condition may become a constraint in taking part in the international event.

Rampal is the son of Peer Bahadur, a resident of Ram Rahim Nagar, in the town; and Karthikgowda is the son of Muthuraj, a resident of Vaidyanathapura.

While Peer Bahadur is a security guard, Muthuraj is a farmer, so they are not in a position to sponsor their children’s trip to Malaysia, which is estimated to cost Rs 50,000 each.

Their friends have appealed to MLA D C Thammanna, MLC B Ramakrishna and sports lovers to support the sportspersons financially.
