BCCI bought Neeraj Chopra's spear for Rs 1.5 crore, won the gold medal from this
The Javelin of Tokyo Olympic gold medalist athlete Neeraj Chopra has been bought by the BCCI for an amount of 1.5 crores. Also, the amount received from the purchase of Javelin will be used for the Namami Gange project.
Olympic Gold Medalist Neeraj Chopra's Javelin, which was e-auctioned sometime back in 2021, was bought by someone for Rs 1.5 crore. Let us tell you that this Javelin has not been bought by anyone but the Board of Control for Cricket in India i.e. BCCI. This information was given by the BCCI official to the news agency PTI on Friday. It is worth noting that after winning the gold medal in Tokyo Olympics 2020, Neeraj Chopra presented one of his javelins to Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he met the Indian contingent.
It is worth mentioning that a few days back, an e-auction of some famous sports items was organized for the Namami Gange project. In this javelin was the center of attraction. This e-auction was organized by the central government to raise funds for the Namami Gange project and the proceeds from these sports items will be used for the Namami Gange project. It is worth noting that in the year 2014, the 'Namami Gange Project' was started by the Central Government for the cleaning and conservation of the Ganga.

A BCCI official told PTI that when Neeraj's Javelin was e-auctioned last year, the BCCI had won the Javelin. Apart from this, we also bought some other things. Let me tell you that this is an important work (Namami Gange Project) by the Central Government in which BCCI officials felt that not only should they take part in it but also help the country by coming forward.
Apart from this, the BCCI official said that we as an organization are looking forward to taking the sports forward. At the same time, we are proud to have one of the best world champion athletes and sports. During the Kovid wave, BCCI also donated 51 crores to the PM Cares Fund.
