Arunima to meet Mayawati for job

Arunima Sinha
Bareilly (UP), Aug 10: Unhappy over delay in her appointment in the Railways as promised, former national-level athlete Arunima Sinha who lost her leg after she was thrown from a moving train has decided to knock the doors of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for getting a job.

"Railways are taken refuge in the ongoing inquiry while delaying decision on their promise of a job... Now I will meet Mayawati to remind her of her promise for a job," Arunima told newspersons.

She, however, acknowledged the efforts of Union Sports Minister Ajay Makan for making arrangements for her treatment at the AIIMS after he heard her plight from the media.

The Railways is yet to fulfil its promise and also extend the financial assistance, she said, adding that Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi has said that he would look into the matter after the end of Monsoon session in Parliament.

Arunima said the Chairman of the Railway Board through his personal assistant has apprised her that the claim amount would be given only on completion of the ongoing inquiries.

She also alleged that the Government Railway Police (GRP) had tried to scuttle the matter to save their skin by trying to show the accident as a fake one.

23-year-old Arunima had lost her leg after she was pushed from the Padmavat Express in Bareilly on April 11 by three men who were trying to rob her.
