Under the ‘Khelega Yuva, Jeetega Himachal’ (youth will play, Himachal will win) initiative, seven sports will be promoted across schools with a strength of 300 plus students to identify talent, nurture them, channelise their energies in the right direction and insulate them from falling prey to menace like drugs.

“A provision of Rs 2 crore will be made for the development of sports infrastructure in schools, for any of the seven sports — football, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, athletics, kabaddi, boxing, badminton and kho-kho,” he said.
