MLC Veena Acchaiah takes sports officials to task

MLC Veena Acchaiah inaugurates the district-level youth fest organised by the Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports, at Kaveri Kalakshetra in Madikeri. MLA K G Bopaiah, MLA Appacchu Ranjan and Zilla Panchayat president B A Harish look on among others

The officials of the Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports should leave the district if they cannot provide proper facilities to budding sportspersons, said MLC Veena Acchaiah.

She was speaking during the district youth fest organised by the Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports, at Kaveri Kalakshetra in Madikeri.

Kodagu, which has contributed the maximum number of sportspersons to the nation is lacking encouragement for its sporting talents today. The Youth Empowerment and Sports Department has failed to provide necessary facilities to the budding sports talents, she said.

Lambasting the officials, the furious MLC asked the officials from the sports department to get out of Kodagu if they cannot do a good job.

The performance of the sports department officials in the district is not up to the mark, she noted.

Veena further said that the swimming pool maintained by the department is in a pathetic state.

MLA K G Bopaiah felt that there is a need to build a robust youth force and to channelise their talent for the development of the country. Youth should inculcate the value of patriotism, he said.

“It is unfortunate that some forces within the country are supporting the extremist groups backed by Pakistan. Disciplinary actions should be initiated against those who deliver speeches which are not in the best interests of the solidarity and security of the nation,” he added.

MLA Appacchu Ranjan, Zilla Panchayat president B A Harish, CMC president Kaveramma Somanna, Taluk Panchayat president Tekkade Shobha Mohan, Zilla Yuva Okkoota president P P Sukumar, Nehru Yuva Kendra coordinating officer Jacinta D’Souza and Government First Grade College Madikeri professor Dr K C Dayanand were present.
