Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday met 49 recipients of Rashtriya Bal Puruskar 2020 in the field of bravery, innovation, social service, sports and art and culture and saluted their sense of duty towards the society and the nation.

“I feel proud to see your commitment to duty towards the society and the country,” he told the recipients, of which four are from Haryana. The Prime Minister later tweeted about the feats of every awardee who got a cash prize of Rs one lakh, a certificate and a citation.

The Prime Minister also lauded the winners from Haryana—among them Khushi Hooda, a young golfer.

“Khushi Hooda hails from Haryana. Her commitment to excel at golf at such a young age is worthy of praise,” tweeted the Prime Minister.
