The players and members of the Indian Deaf Cricket team called on the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, on Wednesday at the Delhi Secretariat.
The visiting team thanked the chief minister and said that it was for the first time that any chief minister met them. They said that though they have been playing for long, there was no platform for them. They apprised the CM of their victory in 2005 at the international level and said that despite of that they did not get any recognition.
The Chief Minister told the delegation that he was proud of the team and said that he wanted them to keep winning. The Chief Minister was also taken aback when the players told him that they were not receiving any support from the BCCI. He also asked the team to submit a representation on financial issues and assured them that he would look into it.
“You people have been performing under such circumstances, this is really great. We will extend all support to you. We will meet again when you win next and come back”, said the Chief Minister.
