Panaji: The Congress party today lambasted Sports department for their failure to provide financial assistance to Coelho sibling who had represented India during recently held Asian Games in windsurfing championship.
Congress’ Goa Spokesman Amarnath Panjikar rued that Sports department completely disregarded the plea by Coelho sibling and their father-cum-coach Donald Coelho for financial help to buy new windsurfing boards.
“Somewhere the confidence level of these players from Goa who represented India at international event went down. They had to practice with the old surfing boards and also participated in the championship with them,” he said.
Panjikar also lambasted Sports department for failing to go to receive the players at the Airport upon their arrival in the State.
