BPCL has a rich history of supporting budding sports talents, inducting about 250 sportspersons in various sporting disciplines in the last several decades. “Among oil & gas PSUs, BPCL has the largest presence in Tokyo Olympics 2020. We, at BPCL, have always identified, inducted, and nurtured talent in various sporting disciplines," Akhtar added.

Other components of the ‘Jeet Ka Padak’ campaign will include an Olympic trivia quiz, videos on archery and hockey; inspiring stories of players on social media platforms, and on-ground activities including a ‘selfie’ booth at BPCL’s fuel stations.
