The nationwide lockdown due to covid-19 has brought misery to many households and budding athlete Geeta Kumari is also bearing the brunt of it. The Jharkhand girl was forced to sell vegetables in the streets of Ramgarh district to make ends meet. According to reports, Chief minister of Jharkhand Hemant Soren got to know about her condition on Twitter and his intervention helped Kumari to get Rs 50,000 from the Ramgarh district administration and also a monthly stipend of Rs 3,000 to pursue her athletics career. Geeta Kumari had won 8 gold medals at state-level walking competitions and had also clinched a silver medal and a bronze medal in competitions held in Kolkata.
