Graffitis to motivate budding players to achieve new feats in Sports-DC Ghanshyam Thori

Olympian Dipankar Bhattacharjee Academy to offer free coaching to BPL families’ children

 JALANDHAR– Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori on Sunday inaugurated 65 × 35 graffitis of the ace shuttlers Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu, the biggest ever in any badminton stadium, in local Hans Raj Stadium, Jalandhar.

The Deputy Commissioner said these graffitis will not motivate the girls but would also inspire the budding players to achieve new feats in the field of sports. He said these graffitis have been made under Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao program to depict that the girls must be given freedom to join the sports so that they can make their country proud one day like Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu.

Giving a new slogan of Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao- Beti Padhao, he said that women have played a stellar role in making India a front runner country in the country and people must promote their daughters to join the sports.

Deputy Commissioner also lauded the Olympian Dipankar Bhattacharjee Academy for announcing that it would offer free coaching to the deserving children belonging to BPL families. He said Badminton is an expensive game and those from BPL families would pass the trials and be trained at free of cost. 

DC also handed over corona warrior certificates to 30 trainees of the academy who have been training since unlock-1 announced during the pandemic. He also appreciated the precautions and safety protocols being followed in the stadium since June 3.

Prominent among the present included interim committee’s members Rakesh Khanna, Aman Mittal and Ritin Khanna.
