Rs. 6 crore Athletic track at Govt Degree College Hamirpur in tatters: Anurag
Hamirpur: Anurag Thakur, Member of Parliament, Hamirpur, criticised the State Government for the poor state of the Athletic track at the Government Degree College Hamirpur. He said that it was poorly maintained.
Anurag said during BJP tenure, the State Government had spent Rs. 6 crore for development of this Athletic track in order to promote sports amongst youth.
However, the present poor state of the facility under Congress State Government highlights their lack of interest towards youth development, he said.
The area covering the track where children play football and other sports enthusiastically has grass, bushes and hemp grown upto their knee length,
The indoor stadium is incomplete too and no action has been taken to expedite the work. Recently, with his efforts, the State Olympic Games were orgainzed in Himachal to encourage athletes.
He further added,
Having a look at this makes one feel that not sports but drugs are being promoted in the State. This could prove to be fatal for the health and hygiene of the children pursuing sports in this ground.
The State Government is least bothered to utilize the available infrastructure for children to pursue sports, he said. He also held Congress Government responsible for the poor state of sports infrastructure in the entire Himachal.
He asked the Chief Minister to look into this matter as it concerns betterment of thousands of youth in the state.
