National game player ‘Lodhi’ Begging on the streets
National para-athlete Manmohan Singh Lodhi, who was promised a government job by the state authorities, is now forced to beg on the streets of Bhopal to earn the livelihood for his family.
He said, “I have met Chief Minister four times, he made promises but didn’t fulfill any of them. I am financially weak. I need money to play and also to run my family.”
“If Chief Minister doesn’t help me, I will earn my livelihood by begging on the streets,” he added.Lodhi had lost one of his hands while performing the labour work but he did not get disheartened by the incident as he went on to give an impressive performance during the 2017 National Games.
