January 14th, 2010 - 3:35 pm ICT by IANS -
Lucknow, Jan 14 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Thursday
offered Rs.5 crore to the Indian hockey team, along with a sponsorship
for the next two years, a day after the crisis between the players and
Hockey India ended.
The players had marched out of the preparatory camp in Pune for this
year's World Cup over non payment of dues.
"Besides giving a sum of Rs.5 crore to the Indian hockey team, we are
also ready to take care of the sponsorship of the team for the next
two years," Mayawati said here.
"I am doing it for my love for sports and I cannot see our national
team losing their morale simply for want of finances, when they should
be preparing for the World Cup to make the nation proud," she added.
