Sports to progress if Center, states create plans together: Anurag Thakur

Union Minister of Sports Anurag Thakur said that sports and players will progress if states and Center create strategies and infrastructure and organize events and competitions together with the spirit of ‘Team India.’

He was in Kevadia, Gujarat for the inauguration of the two-day National Conference of Ministers of Sports of the States and Union Territories.

“If states and center create policies, infrastructure, organize events, competitions with the spirit of Team India, sports and players will get a chance to progress. That is why nationwide thinking must be adopted instead of regional,” Thakur said while talking to the media.

“Work will be done on bringing accountability and transparency to sports organizations. Also, we will work on how court cases can be reduced in the future and more time and money be devoted to sports,” he added.

On the issues to be discussed at the conference, Thakur said that discussions will be held on potential Khelo India events in the future, such as Khelo India Youth Games and Khelo India University Games.

“Players will also get their showcase their talent. There will be a talent hunt and players will also get a chance to progress,” he added.
