Since I took charge of the Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council, our main endeavor has been to promote sports at all levels. That also includes introducing the path-breaking coaching and mentoring programs for fresh talent and providing innumerable platforms to youth to showcase their talent through sports competitions and tournaments at inter-district level.
The Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council was created in 1959 to provide much needed sports platform to the growing young population in the state. We have also initiated new talent search programs such as “Sports for All” to connect the Council with each and every sportsman in the J&K, through an innovative programme.
We are paying special attention for building new sports facilities as well as upgrading existing infrastructure. A large number of schools and college halls and grounds have also been used for training young and energetic youth of the state for games like badminton, Basketball, Wushu, Thang Ta and others.
The results that we have achieved in the process have been very positive as the number of sportspersons from our state winning medals in national and international events has rapidly increased. This is also an ode to the effort put in by the council officials and staff to the service of the people of the Jammu and Kashmir.
