Every hobli must have a stadium: MLA

Taluk-level sports meet for primary school students begins in Chnagar

Speaking after inaugurating taluk level sports meet for higher primary and middle school students at Dr B R Ambedkar District Stadium , Shetty said children from rural areas can compete with their contemporaries living in cities.

Stressing on the need for students’ involvement in sports, Shetty emphatically said students should realise it is important to be involved in sports and excel as well, for reasons that studies alone cannot help someone go a long way.  “Sports helps you stay alert and agile,” he added. Regretting the fact that some of the developmental works were progressing at snail’s pace,  he said the works need to be speeded up.

A requisition was submitted to the MLA with regard to the requirement of a track suit for students who wish to participate in various sports events representing the school.

D Lingaraju of taluk Physical Education Association, R Channanjaiah, Government Employees Association Secretary Rangaswamy, District Primary School Teachers Association Secretary Srikantaiah, Prabhuswamy and others were present.
