It is necessary to be disciplined in life. Winning and losing is part of the game. The player should not be disheartened by the defeat.

Apart from this, the state government has also honored the country’s medal winning players in Paralympic games and the players from the state participating in this game.

The Chief Minister said that the state government has taken several programs forward in the field of sports. Works like reserving land for playgrounds in villages, construction of playgrounds, construction of open gyms and construction of mini-stadiums at block level and stadiums at district level are going on on a war footing. Sport kits are being made available in all gram panchayats through Yuvak Mangal Dal and Mahila Mangal Dal. The state government has recently issued appointment letters to two sportspersons, taking forward the process of recruitment to the gazetted posts of sportspersons of the state who have won medals in international competitions.
