KSOD Delhi lauds Mary, extends solidarity to Sarita


At the reception of the pugilists, Kuki Students’ Organisation Delhi praises MC Mary Kom’s gold-medal win at the Asian Games in South Korea, but feel her team-mate Sarita Devi lost out due to “unfair” decisions during her bout. The boxers were presented bouquets and Thadou-Kuki traditional shawls ‘saipikhup’ at the informal reception at IGI International Airport, New Delhi.

While congratulating the mother-of-three, KSOD christens 31-year old Mary Kom ‘Tahchanu Mary’ for her unprecedented feats at international competitions. “ We are really proud of Pi MC Mary Kom. She’s a mother, an idol and a fighter. She went to the game as a hero, and returned home as a ‘shero’. She deserves more than what she’s got. We respect the support of her husband Pu Onler Kom to Pi Mary. ‘Tahchanu Mary’ is in our hearts and will always be,” KSOD stated.

KSOD also extends solidarity to Sarita Devi Laishram who was denied by the judges in spite of her performance. “Sarita appeared to be a clear winner in the bout, dominating the proceedings with such ferocity that Park barely managed to stand the assault. But much to the shock of the Indian contingent and the spectators, the judges awarded the bout to Park. We are feeling cheated and discriminated. We are with Sarita Devi and she deserves a lot more,” said KSOD.

KSOD further slams the Indian sports administrators for the lack of support when she (Sarita) needed it  most. KSOD expresses its shock when there were no officials from the concerned authorities to receive her at the airport. No cab were arranged for her, so KSOD executives and members took the responsibility of dropping her till her lodge. KSOD urges the state government to act upon the ‘injustice’ meted out to Sarita as it could discourage the sportsmanship of her in particular and the state in general.
