Sinha said that for the first time when Anita Kundu came and requested me to cooperate in climbing Everest, after that we helped her in every possible way, as a result today Anita Kundu not only climbed Everest, but today she has helped many girls and become an inspiration for many who want to make their place in the mountaineering.

Lakshmi Jha also met me and she told her wish, then I helped her take her mountaineering  training at NIAM Institute in Uttar Kashi, as a result of which Lakshmi Jha hoisted the flag of India on Mount Kilimanjaro.

Sinha said that there is no dearth of talents in Bihar, people of Bihar are excellent in every field, they just need to provide proper guidance and facilities, but due to the indifference of the Bihar government, these talented sportspersons/climbers of Bihar could not progress further.

Lakshmi Jha said her experience that she is the first woman from India to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in the shortest possible time. It also took him only 36 hours to climb the summit, whereas so far others have taken 6 to 8 days. Let us tell you that Mount Kilimanjaro has also been considered one of the most difficult climbs in the world. Its height is 5895 meters while Everest’s height is 8848 meters.

Lakshmi Jha was also felicitated by the State convenor of BJP Sports Cell Satish Raju and his team with angavastra, memento and flower bouquet.
