Not satisfied by the Sports Ministry’s explanation, Sakshi wrote a letter to PM Modi and Sports Minister Kiran Rijiju, asking if she would win the Award ever in her career.
Sakshi writes that“I am proud to have been conferred with the Khel Ratna. Every sportsperson dreams of winning all the awards. A sportsperson puts her life at risk for it. I also dream of winning Arjuna award. “What more medal do I get for the country that I be honoured with the Arjuna award. Or in this wrestling life career I would never have the good luck of winning this award?” She wrote in her letter to PM Modi
Sakshi won gold at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championships in 2017 and a silver at the Asian Wrestling Championship in New Delhi. She also won a bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast
