As per the reports, CM Patnaik made this announcement while felicitating the Odisha Juggernauts for “scripting history” by emerging champions at the inaugural edition of the Ultimate Kho Kho League. He presented a total cash award of Rs 2 crore to the team at the felicitation ceremony organised at Kalinga Stadium here this evening.

The Chief Minister said: “Kho Kho has been a traditional sport restricted to rural belts and interiors with limited audiences. You scripted history with your victory at the Ultimate Kho Kho. This will be remembered and discussed for days to come. It will also inspire the younger players to pursue it as a professional sport. Today, people are talking about Ultimate Kho Kho and Odisha Juggernauts, and we feel extremely proud of our team.”
