    Diamond Merchant Promises Houses, Cars For Women's Hockey Team: Gujarat

    Gujarat: A big story surrounds the ears of people recently in Gujarat. Gujarat's billionaire diamond merchant Savji Dholakia promised to provide houses and cars for the Women's Hockey Team.

    Indian Women's Hockey team had displayed a significant game in Tokyo Olympic Games 2020. Dholakia's company will serve ₹ 11 lakh to the Indian women's Hockey team members to build a house.

    A billionaire merchant has further promised that the group will also award other members if the team returns home a medal. In addition, a "brand-new car" worth ₹ 5 lakh will be provided for those members who already hold a house.

    India defeated Australia in women's hockey to join the semifinals at Tokyo Olympics. However, its first Olympic semifinal competition suffered a loss as Argentina ran out 2-1 winners. The Indian women's hockey team will challenge Great Britain in the bronze medal game.

    Over a Twitter post, the diamond merchant had tweeted, "With incredible pride in my heart, I take this moment to announce that HK Group has decided to honor our Women hockey team players. For each player who wishes to build her dream home, we will assist ₹ 11 lakh."

    "Our girls are creating history with every progress at Tokyo 2020... It is our little effort to boost the spirit of our athletes," he continued in the post.

    Shortly following his statement, many others additionally tied in to drive the team. "Dr. Kamlesh Dave, my brother's friend from the US, has promised to honor all champions with one lakh rupees each," Mr. Dholakia addressed.

    "I appreciate Indians living in The United States assisting Indian sportspersons. This will not simply promote the spirit of our athletes but will further encourage them to work better in coming matches," he said in a series of tweets. 

    "I would further like to drive my citizens to proceed ahead and help our athletes. We need to motivate them so that they could bring more glory to our country. Jai Hind!"
