'Dangal' effect: 100 wrestling mats for Haryana 'akhadas'

The Haryana government on Sunday said 100 wrestling mats will be provided to 'akhadas' in the state following the success of Aamir Khan's film #Dangal, based on wrestling.

"Dangal" highlights the struggle of a wrestler father to train his daughters into international champions.

Hayana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who met wrestling champions Geeta and Babita Phogat and their coach-father Mahavir Singh Phogat, on whose lives film "Dangal" is based, to honour them, also said that his government has set up a committee led by the Chief Secretary to streamline the process of giving employment to the state's outstanding sportspersons. 

He said that based on the recommendations of this committee, a new policy for sportspersons would be formulated.
Geeta and Babita are ace wrestlers who hail from Balali village in Charkhi Dadri district.

Khattar, on this occasion, also gave the first-ever "cashless Shagun" to Geeta Phogat who got married recently.
