Babita Phogat backfires at Haryana govt, says ‘seems like illiterate people are making policies’
New Delhi, Jun 08 (ANI): Wrestler Babita Phogat reacted on Haryana government for issuing a notification asking sportspersons from the state to hand over one-third of their earnings from professional events and endorsements to the Haryana Sports Council. She asserted that ‘it seems as if illiterate people are making policies.’ Phogat added that the sportspersons are already paying the taxes on the money that they won in the competitions. If Haryana government thinks that this decision of them is going to work than the medal count will go down. “I am saddened by notification. It seems as if illiterate people are making policies. Do they not know that we're already paying taxes on money we win in competitions. If this is how things are going to work the medal count will go down,” said Babita Phogat.
