"Earlier the funding for these players used to be stopped but we are changing it.
It is a big challenge for me that the funding for the medal prospects for the next Asian Games, Commonwealth Games continues.
I am trying my best, talking to corporates who are passionate about sports to raise funds," he said.
Rathore assured that there will be no bureaucracy from the Ministry's side and no call for help will go unanswered.
“Things will change, I'm not saying it will be fast but I can assure the speed of change will be the best as we can do.
You have already noticed the differences you will see many more differences ahead. Stay focussed on your sport," he said.
