Narendra Modi calls for sports policy to attract youth in Gujarat

Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said his government would implement a policy to attract youth in the state towards sports.

"Gujarat will lead the country in implementing the sports policy and 'Khel-Mahakumbh' is a step forward," he said.

The ongoing Khel-Mahakumbh, organised by the state government, has seen a record number of 21 lakh sportspersons having registered their names in about 21 different games in this year's event.

"Sports is all important in the development of human beings, but nowadays grounds are seen empty because of the burden of education, which is a matter of concern," Modi said.
