“I had joined college in 2013 and it was there that I discovered that I have skills in shooting. I joined the National Cadet Corps (NCC) and it supported me financially. I represented Gujarat in the sport as well. Then I started getting interest in the sport,” Pushpa Gupta told ANI.
Her Journey started in 2013 where she was a part of the NCC through which she got financial support. But as soon as the NCC program got over she was not able to get the financial support as the sport was very expensive.
Former Athlete Sunita Godhra has stated that by this time Pushpa Gupta should have a government job by now to support her family.
