RTI reveals Hockey is not National Game of India Government says to 10-year-old Aishwarya Parashar

RTI reveals Hockey is not National Game of India Government says to 10-year-old Aishwarya Parashar

Until today, I thought Hockey was the national Game of India but today
Right to information act opened the eyes.

Lucknow based 10 year old Aishwarya Parashar filed an right to information application to the Prime Minister’s office seeking certified copies of orders related to declaration of National anthem, song, sport, animal, bird, flower and symbol.

After this PMO transferred the application to the Home Ministry

Then Home Ministry forwarded the application to Ministry  of Youth Affairs and Sport.

In a reply, Sports Ministry under Secretary Shiv Pratap Singh Tomar wrote in Hindi to Aishwarya that the ministry has not declared any sport or game to be the National Game.

This means that India has no national game.
Hockey is not national game of India

Until now, every Indian learned that Hockey is the national game of India and even we wrote about it proudly even government web portals also say

Hockey is the national game of India.

Now let us hope now Indian government will declare Hockey as the National game of India
