SHIMLA------BJP state in-charge and Chief Patron of Paralympic Committee of India Avinash Rai Khanna told that Sports Minister Anurag Thakur launched the theme song of Paralympic Games virtually.

Avinash Rai Khanna Said The song "Kar De Kamaal Tu" is composed and sung by a Divyang cricket player Sanjeev Singh who is a resident of Lucknow. The idea of Paralympic Committee of India was to get the song composed from the Divyang community as a mark of inclusiveness. The lyrics of the song motivate not only the athletes but all the people with any form of disability to never underestimate themselves and what they have in them to create wonders.

Avinash said I take this as my endeavor togive wings to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's vision of India@75 as inclusive India. The Paralympicmovement in India has taken a larger-than-life shape in very short time andpara sports is one of the best ways to do it. Para-sports need to be broughtin the mainstream in India. This theme song is composed to boost themorale of Indian Paralympic contingent. We request all Indians to showtheir support by following the Games and hear & share the theme song.

Anurag Thakur said, "India is sending its largest ever contingent to the Paralympic Games in Tokyo – 54 para-sportspersons across 9 sports disciplines. India will be watching your every move, we will be following your incredible journey at the Games. The sheer determination of our Para-Athletes shows their phenomenal human spirit. Remember that when you play for India you will have 130 crore Indians cheering for you! I am extremely confident that our para- athletes will give their optimum best! Prime Minister Sh Narendra Modi had met our Rio 2016 Paralympic Games athletes and has always had a keen interest for the welfare of our athletes and focussed the government's approach on nurturing talent along with development of sports Infrastructure across the country. I would also like to congratulate the Paralympic Committee of India and its President Ms. Deepa Malik for ensuring that our athletes are well prepared and receive the best facilities."
