Govt to start 1000 Khelo India small centres to encourage sports culture in country

@KirenRijiju
Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, today said that the government has made various policy changes and taken up initiatives to encourage and support sportspersons and the sporting community even after they retire.  

Addressing the 10th Global Sports Summit, TURF 2020, organized by FICCI, Mr.Rijiju said, that we are also starting 1000 Khelo India small centres across the country that will help retired sports persons get employment or some role in shaping the sports culture of the country.

The Minister noted that India has huge potential where sports is concerned but potential alone has no meaning unless utilized and channelized in the right way.

Rijiju urged the industry, business, and corporate houses to come together with the government in helping create a sporting obsessive society.

The Minister also said that the Khelo India and the Fit India movements are going on strongly. Matt Carrol, CEO, Australian Olympic Committee said that both Australia and India recognize the importance of sports; not just through the success of our bright athletes but the wellbeing and community development that sports bring.

Dr Amit Bhalla, Co-chair, Sports & Youth Affairs Committee, FICCI & VP, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions and Mr Dilip Chenoy, Secretary General, FICCI put forth their views on the importance of sports and the sports industry.
