Delaying construction of Sports University is neglecting the youths: Sh Santikumar


IMPHAL, January 24: Former BJP Manipur Pradesh president Sh Shantikumar who is a national executive member of BJP has charge the Congress government that delaying the construction of National Sports University means neglecting the youths of the State.

He was speaking at a mass enrolment membership drive of BJP Sekmai Mandal at Pheiyeng today.

He further said that the NDA government has gifted National Sport University to Manipur including it in the 100 days of NDA work programme. But due to the negligence of the State government the construction cannot be started till today.

The foundation stone for the construction of the Sports University was scheduled to be laid during Prime Minister Narendra Modi`™s maiden visit to the state on November 30 last year. However, the Ibobi government has delayed the process because of the land dispute with the farmers, he said.

This opportunity of having a Sports University in the state might slip away from our hands only because of the delay in settling the land dispute issue. It has also been reported that there is high chance of shifting the Film Institution to other state very soon, he said.

Setting up a university or an institute means some of the unemployment problem will be solved. Our next generation will call us a big fool and uncivilized if we misses this opportunity, he said.

BJP is now on a mass enrolment drive to strengthen membership in the State starting from November last year and will continue till March 31.

The Narendra Modi led NDA government has taken up various developmental schemes for the poor people including the Jandhan Yojana (Zero Balance account), compulsory latrine under clean India mission etc, he added.
