Saying that the condition of football player Sangita Kumari brings embarrassment and shame to the country, Sharma asked the Jharkhand government to address the issue on priority.

In a statement, the National Commission for Women chairperson said the women's body has come across a Twitter post which said that an international level football player from Jharkhand is working as a labourer in a brick kiln due to financial constraints.

" Sangita has not just represented India on an International platform but she has also represented Jharkhand in the world due to her own hardwork and consistency," the NCW said.
