Chandigarh, June 16
In view of the rapidly declining Covid cases, Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi, Minister for Sports, Youth Services and NRIs Affairs, on Wednesday directed the Sports Department to open all stadiums, including those in Mohali, for players desirous to participate in national and international sporting events.
The minister said the state government had decided that the players aspiring to participate in national and international-level tournaments should be given exemption to practice in open stadiums as Covid cases had been sharply decreasing in the state. “Players and coaches will have to ensure compliance with the guidelines issued by the Health Department for the prevention of Covid,” he said.
Special Secretary-cum-Director, Sports and Youth Services, DPS Kharbanda said district sports officers had been asked to complete the arrangements for opening stadiums. — TNS
