District Magistrate (DM) of Ghaziabad, Ritu Maheshwari yesterday said that sports facilities will be provided in all revenue villages in the district and to that end all SDMs and Tehsildars should ensure that sports grounds be developed in these villages in the land earmarked for them, or if not, then such land should be made available by them. She said this is being done to promote sporting talent in rural areas.
The DM said that at least proposals for 50 villages should be ensure in the first phase and if bigger tract of land is available in any village, proposal should be made for development of playground in which football and other games can be played. Where larger grounds are not available a different proposal can be made. These grounds should have proper fencing and boundary wall etc, to protect them from encroachments.
