In Amritsar, the Ambedkar Education and Cultural Society (AECS) and Saroop Rani Women College (SRWC) also honoured Navjot Kaur with a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh.

Navjot Kaur said as she has been feeling proud, every woman of the country can succeed in any field by concentrating on her dreams and aims.

The prize was given to the wrestling prodigy by the society’s chairman and spokesperson of Punjab Congress, Dr Raj Kumar Verka, MLA from Khadoor Sahib Ramanjit Singh Sikkhi, MLA (Amritsar north) Sunil Dutti, former Olympian wrestler Pehlwan Kartar Singh while celebrating International Women’s Day at the SRWC.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Verka said, “The society has been honouring a woman every year on the occasion of the International Women’s day for their performance in bringing laurels to the country.”

Making an appeal to the society, Verka said the people of the country should at least, now, understand that the girls are not less than boys in today’s world. “We should take a pledge on the day of the International Women’s Day that we should come forward to make people aware that female foeticide is a biggest sin,” he said.

He said Navjot Kaur had done both Punjab and the country proud and he was confident that the immensely talented woman would continue to bag international medals in future too.
