Bindra lauds 'sporting' BCCI

Olympic Gold medalist Abhinav Bindra on Monday lauded BCCI’s efforts in bringing in professionalism to the sporting arena which is a key ingredient in achieving international success urging the other associations to follow the suit.

“BCCI has done a good job in creating the professional environment in the sporting arena. All other associations need to follow this. This is the first and significant step, rest will follow,” Bindra said during a seminar related to National Conference on Sports and Sports Infrastructure here on Monday.

BCCI joint secretary and one of the newly-elected Vice-Presidents of Indian Olympic Association (IOA), Anurag Thakur praises BCCI’s contribution in building sporting infrastructure in the country.

“BCCI gave Rs 50 crore to the sports ministry. But it was not used properly. Some money was given to Jammu and Kashmir government (for renovation) and PT Usha (her academy in Kerala),” Thakur said.
