Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Oct, 28: Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha today inaugurated Water Sports Centre under PMDP scheme at Nehru Park, Dal Lake. The Lt Governor also launched the International Standard Water Sports Equipments on the occasion.
The Lt Governor congratulated the concerned officers and sportspersons for completion of the Water Sports Centre at Nehru Park in record time. For encouraging water sports in Jammu region as well, a similar Water Sports Centre is coming up at Ranjit Sagar lake, Basohli, announced the Lt Governor.
The government is working on a multipronged strategy to tap the immense sports potential to make J&K a Centre of Sporting Excellence, he added.
The region is bestowed with a number of water bodies which can be effectively used to facilitate water sports. A number of steps have already been taken in this regard. J&K has huge potential in water sports and the UT Government is aiming to promote water sports by developing water sports infrastructure like the newly inaugurated Water Sports Centre to facilitate the associated sports persons, said the Lt Governor.
J&K Government is embarked on an ambitious mission to achieve holistic development of sports in the UT. To achieve the desired results, innovative measures have been taken for the development of sports sector in the UT by ensuring modern sports infrastructure, he maintained.
Highlighting the measures taken by the UT Government for the development of the sports sector in J&K, the Lt Governor observed that for the past two months, we are working exhaustively for the development of sports infrastructure and allied activities in the UT. A number of multipurpose indoor sports halls, playgrounds, stadia and other sports related facilities have been inaugurated during the period, he added.
The Lt Governor said that the Government is dedicated towards identifying and promoting the sporting talent of the Union Territory. He also expressed hope for organizing eight sporting events in J&K once the COVID crisis subsides.
Sports activities help positively channelize the youth energy and we are committed to promoting every sport and providing sustained handholding to every sportsperson of the region with necessary equipment, infrastructure and facilities.
We are also focused on paving an appropriate platform for productive engagement of youth and to give necessary exposure to the local players at national and International level, he continued.
Sports kits are being provided in every panchayat with the hope that the entire young generation is provided exposure to sports. Stadiums and indoor sports complexes would also help improve the skills of such aspiring sportspersons. We are going to provide Olympic-level training in 53 different sports to our energetic youth.
My aim is to provide world class training to our youngsters with state of the art sports facilities in Jammu and Kashmir to make it one of the most impressive and modern sporting venues in India. I am personally looking at a comprehensive sports policy, access to the best of the coaches who would help our sportsperson to polish off their skill sets and train them for international competition across a range of sports, he said.
The Lt Governor called on all the stakeholders to put in extraordinary efforts to nurture the sporting talent, especially among the youth. I hope more corporate groups come ahead and sponsor water sports and its athletes, he said. He also underlined the importance of preservation of the Dal Lake through sporting activities.
The Lt Governor also hoped that the youth grab the opportunities provided by the government, and positively transform their energies and raise the Indian Tricolour high in international tournaments.
