JKFA aghast at conditions of playing fields
Srinagar, June 1: The J&K Football Association (JKFA) has voiced its concern on the dilapidated condition of the playing fields across State.
“There is already dearth of playing fields in the state and those which were available to us were either turned into parks or parking lots. The condition of remaining fields is miserable and if Government and J&K State Sports Council doesn’t turn their attention towards them soon they will become history” said JKFA President, Zamir Thakur while interacting with media at Polo Ground here on Wednesday.
“Recently we saw the historical TRC ground being occupied by the Jammu bound sumo vehicles and if we will not stand up to stop these things from happening soon their will be no playing field available in Srinagar city” he said.
He appealed Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to intervene and direct authorities to make condition of playing fields better and playable.
