Extending help to the family of a young fitness trainer, Barinder Kohli (38) who had passed away recently, the Punjab Youth Development Board (PYDB) Chairman, Sukhwinder Singh Bindra, on Tuesday assured full support to his family and said he would take up the matter of providing job to one of his family member at the earliest.

While handing over a cheque of Rs 25,000 at victim’s house, Bindra said he would write to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to provide financial aid and free education to the deceased’s seven-year-old son.

He added that he has taken up the matter of opening gyms soon since Covid-19 situation is getting normal with Chief Minister so that gym owners/trainers can support their families.

Singh added that the government is leaving no stone unturned to make Punjab a hub of sports in the country and gyms play a pivotal role in this direction.

He said every effort is being made to ensure the holistic development of youths. He told that the youth are blessed with special qualities and one of them is that they develop a team spirit during the game, which can help them to excel in their lives.
