Sports Minister seeks complete details of veteran, aspiring players

The Punjab Sports Department has issued strict instructions to all the District Sports Officers to furnish complete details of the players. The comprehensive details in a prescribed proforma would be submitted to the Head Office at Chandigarh by September 21 by all means.

In a press communiqué issued here, Sports Minister Rana Sodhi said that in a recent brief function to honour Arjuna, Dhyan Chand and other national awardees, it has come to the fore that many eminent sportspersons, who had excelled at national and international level, have been deprived of the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Sports Awards and other concessions and facilities of the state government’s sports policy-2018 due to lack of the coordination between district sports officers and players. Hence, strict instructions have been issued to all the District Sports Officers to furnish complete details of such decorated sportspersons to the headquarters in a time bound manner.
