The Manpreet Singh-led side's confidence must be sky high as they had thrashed Japan 6-0 in their last round-robin match.
Manpreet Singh-led Indian men's hockey team had ended a 41-year-old long wait for an Olympic medal when it clinched the bronze at the Tokyo Games in August.
Stating that the State government is investing in grassroots-level hockey training centres, the resolution said that a high-performance centre has been established at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar.
UAE-based Indian entrepreneur Dr Shamsheer Vayalil also personally called up Sreejesh and congratulated him for his exemplary performance.
India’s Olympic contingent will come back to the country in the knowledge that, between them, they have won seven medals.
