NEW DELHI: The Congress decision to nominate star boxer Vijender Singh for the prestigious South Delhi constituency has come as a surprise to many but former chief national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu has not been taken aback at the development.The longest serving national coach in Indian boxing history, Sandhu was in charge when Vijender bagged the historic bronze medal in the middleweight categary at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Sandhu feels that Congress President Rahul Gandhi always admired and appreciated Vijnder’s skills inside the ring. “Gandhi is a boxing fan and liked to watch Vijender in action,” Sandhu said on Wednesday. “I remember, during the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Gandhi would sometimes come to the Talkatora Indoor Stadium unannounced to watch Vijender’s bouts. “Later, he would come to encourage our team members, speak to Vijender and leave. I found him to be a genuine boxing lover,” said the former coach. In 2015, Vijender turned a professional boxer under the WBO banner and has performed excellently since then — winning 10 bouts in a row. On July 16, 2016, Vijender took on Kerry Hope of Australia at Delhi’s Thyagaraj Sports Complex and Rahul Gandhi was present to watch the keenly fought bout. “As far I know, Vijender was in close contact with Gandhi. He would sometimes go and meet the Congress leader. But I don’t know whether that resulted in Vijender getting the party ticket in this election,” Sandhu said. Having two WBO titles, Asia Pacific Super Middleweight Oriental Super Middleweight, under his belt, Vijender now takes on BJP’s sitting parliamentarian Ramesh Bidhuri and Aam Aadmi Party leader Raghav Chadha in the political arena. Back in 2017, during an event organised by the PHD Chamber of Commerce in Delhi, Vijender and Rahul Gandhi were engaged in an interesting conversation. Vijender, who was in the audience, had some questions for the Gandhi scion, and Gandhi had some interesting responses. To begin with, the professional boxer asked him that while a lot of politicians were seen inaugurating sport events, they are rarely seen playing any sport. Gandhi replied that he practised Aikido, which is a modern Japanese martial art, and also swims regularly. Vijender then suggested that Gandhi post videos of his sporting activities to inspire the youth. What was more interesting though was the second question which also won applause from the audience. The boxer wanted to know if Gandhi would tie the knot anytime soon or only after he became Prime Minister. The Congress leader almost ducked that, passing it on to “destiny and it will happen when the time is right…”, giving the audience something to laugh about. Vijender pressed and said: “Everybody is waiting for it. It will be quite something if you become Prime Minister and then marry.”

A parallel pipeline to return water from the plant to the reclamation site has been completed, DRD said.Work to upgrade the plant’s retreatment capacity is well advanced, with carbon loading – also part of the overall commissioning process – set to begin immediately.An 8 km pipeline to transport retreated tailings from the plant for cyclone deposition on the Driefontein 4 tailings dam and a parallel return water pipeline from the deposition site to the plant have also been completed.Phase 2 of the project, which involves consolidation of what remains of Phase 1 material and the remaining tonnes of material acquired, envisages a monthly production rate of 1.2 Mt and is planned to be enacted within 24 months after the start of Phase 1 production.Key features of Phase 2, feasibility of which will be tested over the next two years, are the construction of a large, centralised plant and an ultra-high volume deposition facility.The acquisition of the project saw DRDGold increase its gold reserves by 92% to 5.75 Moz.
