Ranchi: Last week, the Hemant Soren government in Jharkhand has launched the ‘Jharkhand Sports Policy 2022’. During this, Chief Minister Hemant Soren himself also honored the players. The state government has implemented this policy with the goal of ‘Swasth Jharkhand, Khushal Jharkhand’, under which efforts are to be made to promote sports culture in the state in five years. There has always been a passion for sports among the youth of Jharkhand and there is no limit to the enthusiasm of the young generation due to the implementation of the new policy related to it.
Sports policy will be affected for five years
The ‘Jharkhand Sports Policy 2022’ will be affected for the next 5 years and during this time further changes will be made if required in the interest of the players. Under this policy, not only provision has been made for the players, arrangements have also been made for their coach. The thinking of the state government is that when the players of the state have shown their talent at the national and international level despite very limited resources, better opportunities can be provided to them by helping them through sports policy.
Preparation to provide minimum assistance up to Rs 50,000
According to the Chief Minister of the state Hemant Soren, in the coming time, by changing the sports policy, the assistance given to the players will be reduced to a minimum of Rs 50,000. The government is also contemplating how to secure the future of the players after crossing the age limit. Not only is the government contemplating on promoting sports activities in schools, it is also emphasizing on expediting the work of stadiums being built.
From the sports policy 2022 of the Jharkhand government, a lot of enthusiasm is being seen among the young players. In the words of a young player, ‘I am very much excited by this sports policy. I liked it very much.’ “Sports policy is going to help us a lot in the next five years,” said one.
Players will get a new identity
Jharkhand Sports Policy has been basically prepared with the objective of better future of sportspersons of the state, expansion of sports activities in the state, employment to youth, confidence in common people and Jharkhand to establish its identity at national and international level. A young player says, ‘Earlier it used to be that if any player used to play, there was no diet in his house. There were no equipment. But, with this amount, they will be able to compensate for some of the diet and equipment.’
Another player says, “Many grounds will be built…..Many academies and many sports institutions will be opened. Children can go to such an institution. Whereas, a young player said, ‘This sports policy will help the upcoming players at every level from small level to big level.’
