Hyderabad, Jun 23: Andhra Pradesh government today announced a reward of Rs 25 lakh each to two kabaddi players from the state, who were part of the Indian team that won the world championship.





A press release from the Chief Minister's Office said two state players R Nagalakshmi and Mamata Poojari would get the cash incentive.

It may be recalled that the state government sanctioned a cash incentive of Rs 50 lakh to ace shuttler Saina Nehwal for winning three international titles this year.  

The kabaddi players were sour that they were ignored by the state government despite being part of the national squad that won the world championship.  Following this, the Chief Minister sanctioned the incentive to the duo today.
