Khel Ratna for Sania

saniaThe Centre has decided to give Khel Ratna award to Sania Mirza as scheduled as the recent high court stay is not likely to block the award. The top brass clarified that she will get the award on the national sports day to be presented by President Pranab Mukherjee. Sania is already in the capital city and said that she would dedicate the award to the nation. Government has also clarified that they would assess the performance of the player for four years before taking a decision. A petition earlier was filed by Para Olympic athlete H N Girisha in Karnataka high court and it has passed interim orders imposing a stay on the government announcement to give Khel Ratna award to tennis sensation Sania Mirza. Girisha moved the court stating that she did not win any medal during 2011-2014 and though he holds 90 points as per rules he did not get justice in the award selection. In 2012 he won a silver in Summer Para Olympics for high jump which gave him 9th place in the Para Olympics and that apart he also hit the records as a third athlete for winning silver. In 2013 he received Padma Sri.
