Early Times Report

JAMMU, Dec 6: Despite availability of funds for the development of water sports infrastructure in both divisions, the Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council (JKSSC) has failed to start the project.
Sources informed Early Times that the Union Government had sanctioned worth Rs 200 Crores for development of various sports infrastructures across state. "Under this project, Rs three Crores each was sanctioned for the development of water sports infrastructure at Mansar Lake and Pahalgam Lake but after lapse of year, the project yet to see daylight," sources said.
"Just after the announcement of the project, a team of Union government visits both the spots and found that the spots was not sufficient for organizing sports activities which was mentioned in proposal submitted by State Sports Council before Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports" sources said adding that now the officials of the council has decided the same project would be shifted at Ranjit Sagar Dam and Dal Lake where the project would be kick started soon.
Sources further said that due to inordinate delay by officials of Sports Councils in implementation the project and no action was taken by Jammu Kashmir government so far against them who made faulty proposal of the water sports infrastructure development.
It is pertinent to mention here that under the Rs 200 Crores project, the others infrastructure which was started in beginning of the current financial year including 22 indoor sports halls of worth Rs 88 Crores (four crores each) is still not completed or the construction work going on snail's pace. Whereas the amount Rs 80.86 Crores, sanctioned for Renovation and Development of MA Stadium Jammu and Bakshi Stadium, Srinagar is hitherto lying idle which shows the faulty planning of Sports Council as well as indifferent attitude of the officials toward sports.
