Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa Monday congratulated Satish Kumar Sivalingam for winning a gold medal in weightlifting in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and reminded him of the state government's Rs.50 lakh cash prize.


In a congratulatory letter to Sivalingam, she said: "You have done both the nation and the state of Tamil Nadu proud by winning a gold medal and setting a new Commonwealth Games record..."

She told Sivalingam it was even more remarkable to win the gold at his first international event of this scale.

"As you are aware, I had announced the enhancement of the financial reward for sportspersons winning a Commonwealth gold medal to Rs.50 lakh in December, 2011. You will now be eligible to receive this cash incentive," she said.
