Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju holds 2-day video conference with Sports & Youth Affairs Ministers of all states, UTs

@RijijuOffice
Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju will hold a two day video conference with Sports and Youth Affairs Ministers of all states and union territories.
 
The two-day video conference tomorrow and day after will chart out the roadmap for grassroot-level sports development as well as the activities of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan and National Service Scheme, across the country. 
 
Speaking about the decision to hold this meeting, Mr Rijiju said, the country is in the second phase of unlock now and it is important to have a dialogue with the states to align the way forward for sports and youth related activities.
 
During the lockdown both the sports and youth affairs departments have been active and continued to pursue the larger goals that have been set.
 
Despite closure of on-field training, online training has been conducted for athletes of all levels as well as for coaches, so that athletes and coaches could remain close to the sport.
 
He said, NYKS and NSS volunteers have worked relentlessly alongside district administration to help in the fight against Covid 19.
 
About 75 lakh volunteers have been involved in creating awareness about safety and health guidelines, distribution of masks, helping the elderly among many other things.
 
Mr Rijiju said, his Ministry wants to assess the impact of all these activities and also plan the way forward, in collaboration with the states.
 
The agenda of the meeting includes review of action taken during Covid 19, as well as discussions on restarting sporting activities at the state-level and identification of budding sports talent through competitions at block and district levels in states and UTs.
 
Inclusion of fitness and sports as part of the curriculum in all schools across the country will also be discussed. Plans to conduct Khelo India events and Youth Festivals later this year or early next year will be decided.
