Haryana Sports Minister Anil Vij on Sunday donated Rs 50 Lakh from his discretionary fund to Dera Sacha Sauda, a controversial sect headed by controversial Sikh leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, for sports.
Vij traveled to Srsa in Haryana to attend Tiranga Rumal Chhu League in the presence of Singh, where he reportedly praised the efforts by the group in establishing sports facilities in the state.
“Rs 50 lakh toh maine apne discretionary fund se diye hain, iska mai hi maalik tha (I have given Rs 50 Lakh from my discretionary fund),” he said in a statement today.
