New Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday announced an award of Rs 1 crore for Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi Malik.

Sisodia visited the parents of the wrestler in Haryana's Rohtak and announced the award. He also announced a promotion for Sakshi's father, Sukhbir Malik, who works as a bus conductor in Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC).

In a communication to Transport Minister Satyendar Jain, Sisodia said, "One of our colleagues (Sakshi's father Sukhbir Malik), while working as a conductor, created such an atmosphere for her daughter so that she could raise the honour of the nation. I propose that apart from felicitating Sakshi Malik, the government should felicitate her family, especially her father. I recommend for the promotion of Sukhbir Malik for his contribution," he said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also congratulated Sakshi and hailed her for making the "whole nation proud".

On Wednesday, the 23-year-old wrestler ended the country's wait for a medal at the Rio Olympic Games as she bagged the bronze medal in the 58 kg category, pulling off a dramatic 8-5 victory in the play-off bout.
