Abhinav Bindra Resigns from ministry of sports
Beijing Olympics gold medalist and star shooter Abhinav Bindra resigned from his government posts on Friday.
The Target Olympic Podiatry scheme has been dropped from the Identity Committee along with the rank of observer in the shooting department and wrote to Union Sports Minister Rajivardhan Singh Rathore. As he deals with some private sports organizations, he said that this decision was taken carefully before any future criticism would arise.
Bindra thanked the government for putting faith in him and handing over responsibility to him. Abhinav Bindra Targeting Personnel (ABTP) Centers of his own projects are working with many private organizations in order to prepare for the whole country, saying that he is retiring from government jobs to be more efficient.
Bindra asked in his letter to avoid him from these two responsibilities. The central government has made 12 Olympians in the Target Olympic Podiatry scheme, which is the most prestigious year for the government. At that time Bindra’s resignation had dropped to 9. BJP MP Anurag Thakur is the president of the committee. Analysts say Bindra’s resignation is also a surprise.
