Lack of sports infra-structure
Newly developed colonies also do not have space for schools or sports facilities
ActIT Jammu, ASP.net Projects, Java, Vb.net, C# Training Jammu
A comprehensive report prepared on amenities in old cities of Jammu and Srinagar that point to lack sports facilities have ramifications which should act an eye-openers for the state government. In Srinagar, lack of sports infra-structure speaks of the government apathetic attitude towards its own citizens. Majority of the children do not have access to sports facilities points to lack of interest of the government not only for the residents of old cities but also to the people living in planned colonies where no space has been kept for such amenities. In fact these findings goes beyond what meets the eye as no school space has been earmarked in the newly developed colonies and those who dared to set up institutions therein have been declared illegal or unauthorized. This is the case with majority of the colonies planned and developed by the state government itself. The parents of the children have to make a beeline to institutions which are located on the outskirts of the cities barring a few exceptions. Unfortunately, the sports complexes set up in both the capital cities were erected more than 30 years back and no expansion has been made to augment the sports infra-structure for the convenience of the residents of colonies or the old cities. That is the reason why sportspersons from J&K usually finish at the bottom of the merit list at the national level. If any sportsman has made a mark at the national or the international in the past that has been mainly due to their individual effort. As such the entire culture of sports as a game of excellence is totally missing in the state as a result of which, J&K has not been in a position to produce national level or world class sportspersons despite the fact that talent is abundant. In Srinagar, the sports infra-structure was under the occupation of the para-military forces for more than two decades and these were the areas declared ‘out of bounds’ for sportspersons.
