  Hockey India donates 31 lakh to CM Relief Fund
BHUBANESWAR,07 Aug 2019 (Team Orisports)

Hockey India today donated Rs 31 lakh to Odisha Chief Minister`s Relief Fund to help the state recover from the devastation caused by Cyclone Fani earlier this year. International Hockey Federation president Narinder Duruv Batra and Hockey India president Md Mushtaque Ahmad jointly handed over the cheque to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik here at the State Secretariat.

The money donated has been collected from the proceeds of the sale of match tickets of FIH Men`s Hockey Series Finals held here at Kalinga Stadium from June 6 to 15, 2019.

Hockey India earlier promised to donate the entire profit from sale of tickets to Chief Minister`s Relief Fund after Odisha was battered by the cyclone just a month before the FIH Series Finals.

Dr Batra, who is also the president of Indian Olympic Association, also presented a memento of IOA to the Chief Minister.
