India a country full of talented, hardworking, and dedicated athletes who always makes India proud. Every time a question arises that why Indian athletes are unable to perform for the nation at the Olympics or any international event? As it is not only about the athletes representing India at such mega-events, it is also about the young guns who are passionate and dedicated towards their sport. Most people judge our athletes that they don't practice or train that hard to compete at such mega-events, which is why they lose. But, no one talks about the ground problem which the athletes face which is the lack of sports infrastructure. It includes grounds, courts, sports complexes where athletes can train and practice.It's not that the Indian government is not doing much for our athletes. The times are changing, and federations of different sport and state governments are working hard to make India stand at level one in every sporting category and event.
The Municipal Corporation Department (MCD) has decided to construct the first sports complex under a pilot project in Raj Nagar Extension, Ghaziabad. This decision was made for promoting sports. It is expected to complete by 2nd October. Facilities provided by the complex are free yoga service, indoor, and outdoor games. There would be a fixed charge for games like badminton, table tennis, and other sports to ensure the maintenance cost of the sports complex. The municipal commissioner added, "If this project becomes successful, the Municipal Corporation will ensure more such sports complex in other zones as well."
A meeting was held with the officials associated with the Khelo India campaign and Fit India campaign to promote sports in the city under Ghazab Ghaziabad Campaign. Around 11,000 street lights are set to install for illuminating the city, with 100 parks and playgrounds to be constructed on the Municipal Lands.
"Promotion of electric vehicles will be emphasized as diesel and petrol vehicles aren't the only sources of air pollution. But, expenditure cost on the consumption of same is very high, and decisions regarding this would be taken soon," the commissioner added.
To improve the condition of municipal schools, the corporation would be doing work for a smart city project for six municipal schools. MCD would be building smart classes in schools at a total cost of ₹4.5 cr. The board members also accused the corporation of giving an advertising contract to a disputed firm in the city. The MCD said that they would grant a 15-year contract keeping the interest of the department at any cost. ₹14.53 cr. has to be paid by the contractor as an annual contract. There is also a provision to cancel the contract in case of violation of terms and conditions. Also, actions will be taken against illegal water plants running in the city to save groundwater levels.
