Need to explore our potential in sports: CM

Need to explore our potential in sports: CM

Imphal, Dec 9 (UNI) Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh today said, "We need to unearth

the inner potential and talents in the field of sports show it to the world."

Speaking at the closing function of the 11th Jadonang Memorial Football Tournament 2017

held here at THAU Sports Complex, Thangmeiband, Imphal West, Mr Biren said, sports helps

in building real human relations and there is no religion, caste, creed etc in sports.

Sports have a great value in promoting peace in the world, he added.

Chief Minister said that the government is trying its level best to complete the ongoing

construction of various sports complex in the hill districts of the State.

According to the recent initiative taken up by the Central Government, playing fields and playgrounds would be developed in each and every village to encourage sports in the

country, he added.

Stating that football is becoming popular these days, Chief Minister urged the Organising Committee of the tournament to organise the tournament at large scale such as National level

so that the tournament would have maximum exposure in the country.

Mentioning the demand made by the Zeliangrong Union for the construction of Sports

Complex, Chief Minister suggested the Union to look for a suitable site for the construction

of the complex and Government would extend every possible help for the construction of

sports complex.

On the occasion, Mr Biren said the government would have a concrete discussion with the

locals of the Thangmeiband area for the development of THAU ground such as construction

of Roofing, Pavilion and Astroturf sand others.

Chief Minister stated that the Kabui people inhabiting in the valley areas of the state were

very active in terms of sports including football etc. Earlier, large number of players belonging

to Zeliangrong community represented in various clubs during different tournaments of the

State. However such representation has been decreasing since many years, he added.

The chief minister said the reason behind the decreasing number of players from the

community might be the non-availability of playgrounds and fields in the locality.

Mr Biren extended monetary assistance of Rs. 50,000 to the Organising Committee of the tournament.

Gaikhangam, MLA appealed the organising Committee to think of expanding the tournament

at the National level scale and it should not be confined only to Zeliangrong community of the


He further said it is indeed true that Haiphou Jadonang was born in Zeliangrong Community

but he represents as a symbol of patriotism of human kind.

The tournament is being organised by Zeliangrong Football Association.
