New Delhi: Indian footballer C K Vineeth, whose service was terminated by Kerala Accountant General's office here, got support from Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who said such an action will hurt the morale of sports persons.

Vineeth, who was appointed Auditor in the Accountant General's Office through the sports quota in 2012, was terminated from service for lack of attendance.

"We expect theminister (Sports Minister Vijay Goel)to intervene and rectify the decision," Vijayan said in a
Facebook Post.

If the Centre fails to take a decision, the state government was prepared to offer Vineeth an 'appropriate'
post, he said.
