On this occasion, in his address, Shri Amit Shah said that today a big dream of the youth of this area is going to come true. There are many schools in the area where there is no ground, so where will these children play. But now by fixing the day of PT in this sports complex, the children of the school, which does not have a ground, will come here to play. Thirty months from today, we will invite Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji to inaugurate this sports complex and I assure you that I myself will monitor it and ensure that this work is completed in thirty months. Today, as an MP of this region, I express my heartfelt gratitude to the Prime Minister of the country and the son of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modi Ji, that this complex would never have been built without his cooperation.

Shri Shah expressed his gratitude to the Union Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs, Shri Anurag Singh Thakur and the Minister of State for Sports, Shri NishithPramanik for helping the Ministry of Sports in preparing the design of this complex. He said that a Bhagirath effort has been started to divert children towards sports in the country. Earlier, Gujarat was always behind in two things – Gujarat’s quota for recruitment in the army was vacant and if there were physical games, Gujarati was nowhere to be seen. But today I can proudly say that this is not the case now. In the coming 10 years, Gujarat should come first in sports in the country, such efforts are being made by our Prime Minister Modiji and Chief Minister Shri Bhupendra Patel. In the last three years, a total of Rs8,613 crore works have been completed within the Gandhinagar area. In Ghatlodiya Assembly Constituency, works worth Rs. 1984 crores, NaranpuraRs.1303 crores, VejalpurRs. 561 crores, Sabarmati Rs.634 crores, SanandRs.800 crores, Gandhinagar (North) Rs2800 crores and Kalol Works worth Rs2493 crore completed.

The Union Home Minister said that by the year 2024, Gandhinagar will get a place in the list of the most developed constituencies of the country. Thirty months from now, when this sports complex is completed, then the work of connecting all the schools with the sports complex has to be done by the operators and principals of the schools. This work has to be done because sports is not just a work of making body strong, but there is need to make great efforts to see sports completely in a humane manner.
