Govt will bear expenses of all players from Delhi: Kejriwal
NEW DELHI: In an attempt to motivate the players of Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that the government will come up with a policy where it will bear all the expense of any national or international players from the city.
The CM and the Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Sunday inaugurated the first synthetic athletics track in east Delhi.
The government will also focus on the school kids who are good in athletics and work for their development as a sports person, the CM said.
The work for this place started here in November 2016 and Sisodia directed the officials to finish it within six months. The complex is ready for athletics but the officials are waiting for the monsoon to end so that from the beginning they can start hosting big athletic events. The new sports complex has international standard facilities and cost nearly Rs 550 crore.
According to the officials, this synthetic track will protect the space from becoming muddy in monsoon. Most of the sports complex in Delhi fails to hold athletic events in monsoon due to the bad condition of the tracks. But this complex will allow the athletes to perform throughout the year.
