DW BUREAU / Chandigarh Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal directed the officers to expeditiously work towards setting up the Haryana Sports Academy for training the players coming from across the country. He added that efforts should be made to ensure that the rehabilitation centre being built in Haryana should set an example in the country as Haryana not only provides best sports facilities to its players but also supports them during their tough phase of injury. The Chief Minister directed the officers to immediately outsource the management of Haryana Sports Rehabilitation Centre for its smooth functioning. The Chief Minister gave these directions during the review meeting of Khelo India Youth Games-2021 in Chandigarh today. Minister of State for Sports and Youth Affairs Sandeep Singh was also present in the meeting.

Likewise, appropriate facilities for athletes and gymnasts should be ensured so as to boost these games in the State, he added.
