Since the international shooter Manu Bhaker targets the sports minister of his promises, the tweeples created an outburst. Hours after Haryana sports minister Anil Vij Saturday demanded an apology from Manu Bhaker, disapproving the “manner” in which she expressed her displeasure at not receiving the promised cash reward of Rs 2 crore for winning a gold at 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires.
Reacting to the tweets, Vij said: “She should have first spoken to the sports department rather than airing her issue in public domain.
There should be some sense of decipline in players. Bhaker should feel sorry for creating this controversy. She has a long way to go. She should focus on her game only.

Vij sought an apology from Bhaker, saying as per the policy of the government the prize money of this year’s award winner is given the next year.
The Haryana sport minister said that it is disgusting to denounce a state government which is giving highest awards in the country. Bhaker should feel sorry for creating this controversy.
