Port Blair, Oct. 18: Shri Kuldeep Rai Sharma, President, PCC in a letter to the Lt Governor stressed on the need to have well equipped stadium under every panchayat to provide an opportunity for the isles’ youth in the field of sports. He stated that if the youths of these islands are given proper opportunity, they can prove themselves at National level in all the fields.

Young sportspersons of these islands have already proved their capability in many such events at National level. In case these youths are given a place where they can practice football, table tennis and badminton etc, it is sure that they will not only be encouraged in sports but will bring fame for the islands.

Sharma therefore requested the Lt Governor to consider well equipped stadium under all Panchayats of these Islands for playing football, cricket, Hockey and  a room within the complex for playing indoor games like table tennis and badminton.
