''Sports like Wushu, Karate, Taekwondo, Judo will get special focus. I have asked the concerned MP and administrative officers to submit a proposal and our ministry will sanction funds for that.
"By giving special focus on sports, we will be accomplishing Mr Modi's dream of making India "super power" in sports," he said.
