This year, she won two back to back International tournaments, bagging the Europa Cup championship in Austria in May and then immediately getting the Silver at the International Roller Skating European Championship in Germany on 10th June.
Addressing the gathering during the celebrations for the Pratap Jayanti, the Minister said that India stands and grows due to its unity. He added that every citizen of the country must unite, irrespective of caste or community and build new India. That will be the real tribute to Maharan Pratap.
He said that it was not only Pratap alone that fought for his land – Mewar, but had it not been for his soldiers like Bhamashah, the support soldiers, the lohars and others he would have found success hard to get. Hence a unit is built out of unity of citizens.
Rathore further added that the image building exercise for the country, being carried out by the PM Office will yield results. Fighting corruption has been the priority of the government. He released a book – Bemisaal Udaipur – 2014-2018 on the occasion.
