The union ministry of youth affairs and sports has not bothered to spend even a single penny after it was opened 24 years ago in 1984. The building has a river view, the Shivalik hills in its backdrop and lies alongside a lush green golf course. This location, which would otherwise be envy to a five-star resort, has turned into virtual ruins in the absence of timely repairs.
