Chandigarh, October 14
Sports activities should be practically seen on ground and not reflect in paperwork only, Punjab Sports and Youth Services Minister Pargat Singh told the sports officials and coaches here today.
He also ordered immediate distribution of sports equipment and kits to the players.
"Strict action will be taken against sports officer of the district if sports equipment are found in stores of any sports office," the minister said during a meeting with the coaches here.
He also asked the Youth Services Department to revive the defunct youth clubs in villages.
The coaches of the Sports Department, officials of the Youth Services Department and physical education teachers were persuaded to work in tandem to connect the youth of the state with the playgrounds.
Pargat Singh also directed that coaches should be deployed wherever required and no centre should be closed.
Arrangements should be made to ensure participation of youth in sports with specialised training for the players and super specialised training for the top class athletes, he added. — TNS
