To effectively prevent and combat the menace of drug abuse, we have to connect the youths with sports by providing them good infrastructure and by creating a good avenue of jobs for outstanding sportspersons. This was stated by Agriculture Minister Kaka Randeep Singh today, while addressing a gathering of industrialists and sports persons, after laying the foundation stone of three sports projects to be completed at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore at Mandi Gobindgarh.

He said the government was committed to develop sports infrastructure in the state, besides providing good jobs to emerging sports persons. He called upon the industrialists of the town to come forward for the maintenance of various government buildings, parks and playgrounds, so that Mandi Gobindgarh could be developed as a sports hub.

He inaugurated two tennis courts, a squash court and a shooting range constructed at a cost of Rs 39 lakh, Rs 33.52 lakh and Rs 38.05 lakh, respectively.

President of Municipal Council Mandi Gobindgarh Harpreet Singh Prince thanked the minister and assured that the Municipal Council would provide all sorts of facilities to players.
