Amidst the start of the Olympic Games in Tokyo on Friday, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given a big gift to the talented sportspersons of the state. Now posts will be reserved for sportspersons in all government departments of the state. Players will be appointed on these posts as per their merit.
In a high-level meeting on Friday, Chief Minister Yogi said that the state government is making all necessary efforts for the promotion of sports and sportspersons. There are posts in various departments under the sports quota, but due to the neglectful policies of the previous governments towards sports and youth, qualified sportspersons were not appointed to these posts. Due to this there is disappointment among the players/athletes of the state. Now that a positive atmosphere has been created in the state regarding sports. A sports university is being set up in Meerut, and open gyms and sports grounds are being built from village to village. In such a situation, it is necessary that appointments should be made under sports quota in all departments.
‘UP police world’s biggest force’
Referring to the police department, the CM said that Uttar Pradesh Police is one of the largest civil police force in the world. In this, it will be useful to take the services of talented players under sports quota. Eligible sportspersons/athletes should be appointed on suitable posts by creating sports quota in the police department. Similarly, appointments should be made on the vacant posts under sports quota in all other departments of the state as soon as possible. The Chief Minister has given instructions to prepare a new policy in this regard. This decision of CM will give a big impetus to the sportspersons.
