GUWAHATI, April 2 - Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has promised to provide financial help to Assam footballer Sumit Rabha for treating his kidney ailments, the director of a city football club said today.
Both the kidneys of 26-year-old Rabha have been damaged and the matter was brought to the notice of the minister by Guwahati City FC, the club�s director Kaustav Chakraborty said in a statement here.
Rabha has represented Assam and plays for several Guwahati-based clubs.
�He needs a kidney transplantation which is very expensive and it is not possible for Rabha�s family to bear the costs. We had appealed to the union sports minister on Twitter and thankfully he responded positively,� Chakraborty said. � PTI
