SRINAGAR- LG Manoj Sinha attended the final match of the LG’s Rolling Trophy on Thursday at the MA Stadium in Jammu. The LG was the chief guest on the closing ceremony and interacted with the players and handed over trophies and cash prizes to the winning and other top performing teams and players of the tournament.

Jammu emerged as the winner of the LG’s Rolling Trophy (Cricket) and was awarded with the cash prize of Rs One Lakh. The second and third placed teams of the tournament, Anantnag and Ganderbal, were awarded with cash prize of Rs 75,000 & Rs 50,000, respectively, while Doda grabbed the fourth spot.

The LG said that the tourney is an important initiative of the Mission Youth and aims to strengthen the roots of sports culture.

“More than 42,000 players competed with the spirit of peace, friendship, equality, and respect. The players with their skill and endurance on the playing field have inspired the young generation, renewed the essential spirit of sports and made this tournament truly memorable,” observed the LG.

The LG reiterated the government’s commitment to provide modern facilities and world class coaching to the sportspersons.

“Under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we have created new infrastructures for the players in far-flung areas. It is being ensured that the youth living in villages get modern facilities and mentoring,” the LG said.

This year, 104 projects under JKIDFC and 117 projects under CAPEX have been completed across the UT. More than 60 lakh children and youth participated in sports activities in the last one year. In many disciplines like gymnastics, judo, football, cricket, we have set up academies to identify & nurture the talents, the LG noted.

Speaking on the transformation, the LG said: “The divisive forces and their sympathizers misguided our youth and gave stones in their hands. Today, with hockey sticks, cricket bats, tennis and badminton rackets in their hands and dreams in the heart, they have embarked on a new journey of peace and prosperity.

“Youth should think big and act towards more ambitious goals in life. The administration is with them at every step”, he added.

On the occasion, the LG also inaugurated the Main Gate at MA Stadium and laid the foundation stone for Artificial Rock Climbing Wall at the premises.
