Who owns Radapora stadium, JKSSC or locals?
Outside Teams Facing Wrath Of Locals
Srinagar, June 11: Radapora Sports Stadium, officially known as Naqshband sports stadium stands in question as the locals don’t allow outside teams to play in the field despite having valid permission from J&K State Sports Council (JKSSC) who claim to own the field.
Recently a team from Srinagar city sought permission from JKSSC to play in the field which was readily granted to them. The field staff of JKSSC cooperated with the side by providing all the requirements including Cricket matting, stumps and chairs. However, when everything was ready and the play was about to start, some of the locals intervened and stopped the teams from playing. Both the teams requested for allowing them to play as they had the permission. After much deliberation they allowed the teams to play.
However, one party left and another party came and stopped the match. They categorically refused to allow the match to proceed.
“It was trauma for us. Despite having valid permission we were not allowed to play by the locals,” team captain of Warriors-XI said.
“We came here with the notion that the field belongs to JKSSC. Even local JKSSC field staff provided us the matting. However, the locals who stopped play said that the matting is their property and they have spent around rupees 50000 on the preparation of turf wicket in the field, “he said.
“ If the field belongs to JKSSC, how an outsider can spend such a huge amount on the preparation of turf and claim to own matting and the field,” he said.
It was not end of the misery for the Warriors and Lions-XI. As the second party left, another person, whose identity couldn’t be ascertained, came running and smashed the sumps out of field. The JKSSC field staff was seen helpless.
