Sports Minister Vijay Goel today asked Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to provide adequate infrastructure to the state kickboxers after a medal-winning young Kashmiri athlete uploaded a video in social media requesting the government to improve facilities.
In the letter addressed to the J&K CM, the Sports Minister said: "The Government of India has funded establishment of Multi-Purpose Halls in all districts in J & K under the special package. "I shall be grateful if you could kindly look into the matter personally and take necessary steps towards providing adequate sporting infrastructure for athletes in the field of Kickboxing in the state of J & K.
"In case Miss Tajamul Islam needs some specific assistance as individual sports person, the Government of India will be happy to consider the request," the letter said. PTI
