Couple of days ago, we had reported of a fuel station in Gujarat that had decided to honour Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra by giving free fuel to anyone with who is named Neeraj. Similar incident is now being reported from Kerala where a petrol pump owner has decided to offer free petrol to people with the name Sreejesh. The owner of the petrol station has done this to honour the Indian national hockey player PR Sreejesh for his performance at the Tokyo Olympics.
The video report has been published by Mathrubhumi News on their YouTube channel. Indian Hockey team showcased a great performance at the recent Tokyo Olympics and secured Bronze medal for India. The team defeated Germans to secure the spot. PR Sreejesh who is also the goalkeeper had also performed very well. What made this medal even more special is that the Indian hockey team was getting a medal at the Olympics after 41 years. The petrol pump owner in Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram wanted to share this happiness with others and as a result he came up with a plan to distribute petrol or diesel worth Rs 101 to anyone who is name Sreejesh.
The owner of pump has printed a pamphlet to let the people know about this limited period offer. The owner mentions that the offer is valid till 31st August 2021. The person who intends to fill petrol and diesel from this particular fuel station should carry an identity proof. Another condition of this particular scheme is that the person can do it once in a week. Considering the rising fuel prices across the country, people have been getting in touch with the fuel station to know more about the scheme. The owner mentions that this scheme was actually suggested by his children and they were an integral part of this planning.
Kerala State Government had recently announced a reward of Rs 2 Crore for PR Sreejesh. The cabinet also decided to promote PR Sreejesh as the joint director (sports) in the general education department. Other than this, NRI entrepreneur Shamsheer Vayalil had also announced a cash reward or Rs 1 crore for Sreejesh. The cabinet also decided to reward Rs 5 lakh to eight other sports persons(Sajan Prakash, K.T. Irfan, Noah Nirmal Tom, Alex Antony, M. Jabir, M. Sreeshankar, Amoj Jacob, and Mohammed Anas Yahiya) from Kerala who had represented the country at the Tokyo Olympics.
After Neeraj Chopra won gold medal, State and Union government had announced rewards and honoured him. Anand Mahindra announced that the manufacturer will be gifting a brand new SUV to Neeraj. Mahindra will be gifting Neeraj Chopra a brand new XUV700 SUV which will be unveiled on 14th of August 2021.
