Shiva Shetty, former Congress corporator has provided financial assistance to 17 girls participating in softball and baseball tournament. According to him these girls are determined to make a career in sports hence their efforts must be recognised. Girls wake up early in the morning and practice at Shivaji Park. Many of them had represented their team at state and national level.
“After observing these girls’ dedication towards the game, I took an initiative to support them. All of us must come forward to promote women’s sports in the country. Today women are doing well in various arenas and are considered at par with men therefore we must encourage them,” said Shiv Shetty.
