GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 28: The sports fraternity of Valley has lashed out at Sports Ministry on the plight of states top athlete, Tanveer Hussein, who took 100-kilometre protest run on Sunday.
Coming severely at Sports Ministry, J&K Sports Development Association (JKSDA) joint secretary, Altaf-ur-Rehman said, “It is pity to see such an amazing talent fighting for his rights. I blame sports council and sports ministry for his plight. It is they who are responsible for his plight and sufferings because Athletic Association comes under their purview”.
“He should have been promoted but instead he has been demoralized during all these years,” he said.
He said in the absence of government help, JK Bank can help to continue his sport.
“JK Bank has been promoting sports and players from last many years and it should not be problem for them to promote such an amazing talent who can run 100-kilometres. I request JK Bank Sports Board chairman, Taffzull Hussain to adopt Tanveer in their organisation so that his talent would not go waste,” he added.
Fort City Athletic Club (FCAC) President while lashing out at Sports ministry and sports council said, “It is sports council and sports ministry that is responsible for his plight. The association doesn’t exist anywhere and still ministry and council sanctions regular grants for them”.
