Union Youth Affairs and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju appealed to the Corporates and PSUs to supplement the Government's efforts to improve the living standards of sports persons.

Replying to supplementary questions in Rajya Sabha, Mr Kiren Rijiju said, through Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay National Welfare Fund For Sportspersons (PDUNWFS), the Centre is assisting the outstanding sports persons of yesteryears living in indigent circumstances.

The Sports Minister said, as sports have also become a new economic activity, the corporates and PSUs should participate in the activity, as it will help sports persons benefit financially.
