Hockey star Vandana Katariya a face of Uttarakhand’s ‘Beti Bachao’ campaign now | Dehradun News – Times of India

August 9, 2021

HARIDWAR: India’s hockey star Vandana Katariya was on Sunday named the brand ambassador of the women and child development department of Uttarakhand as well as the brand ambassador of the Centre’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ scheme for Haridwar district.
The announcements were made by chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on the same day that she was awarded the Tilu Rauteli award, the state’s highest honour for women, and a day after the state government announced a cash reward of Rs 25 lakh for her Olympic feat – she is India’s first woman to score an Olympic hat-trick.
State sports and education minister Arvind Pandey visited Pandey’s home in Haridwar’s Roshnabad village to hand over the certificates announcing her appointment as brand ambassador to Katariya’s mother.
“It is a proud moment for us,” Vandana’s mother Sauran Katariya, said.
CM Dhami said that he was glad to announce “Uttarakhand’s daughter Vandana Katariya as brand ambassador of the women and child development department.” “She played tremendously in the hockey match at the Tokyo Olympics and made us all proud,” he added.
On Wednesday, an FIR was filed against some people for bursting crackers in mock celebration outside Katariya’s house in Roshnabad after the women’s hockey team lost to Great Britain in the play-off for bronze and finished fourth in the Olympics. The miscreants alleged that the team had lost for having “too many Dalit players”. Three accused have been held so far. The Indian women’s team made history by finishing as one of the last four teams in the Olympics for the first time.
