Mary Kom meets Khandu

Press Trust of India  |  Itanagar 

Ace boxer and MP MC

Mary Kom called on Chief Minister Pema Khandu today at his secretariat office here.



The chief minister extended a warm welcome and greetings to Mary Kom, who was accompanied by husband Onler Kom, an official statement said.

The five-time world boxing champion expressed her delight on her second visit to Arunachal.

"I am here because I love Arunachal. We are neighbours. We are brothers and sisters," she said.

Mary Kom, who came here to attend 'Mrs Arunachal' programme, also spoke about her struggle as a woman to become the world boxing champion.

"Even my father didn't approve of my career in boxing during initial days. I never gave up on my struggle. I knew what men can do, women too can do it," she said.

In her appeal to women of Arunachal, Mary Kom insisted on standing up to fight for their own rights. "If we women do not support and help each other, who will support our cause?," she asked.

She is determined to win a gold medal for her country in Olympic Games, a dream she says has remain unfulfilled.

Khandu expressed delight on her visit to the state and wished her luck to win a gold medal for the country. He also hoped that women of the state will be greatly inspired by her success story, the statement added.
