Member of Parliament demands year-long training programs in Cricket, Football and Kabaddi so that Island youths can participate in high-profile sports leagues

Port Blair, Mar 24: The Member of Parliament of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Mr. Kuldeep Rai Sharma has expressed deep concerns regarding the lack of commercial training centers for sports in Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

In a letter addressed to the Lt. Governor of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Member of Parliament pointed out that Indian Premier League, Indian Super League, and Pro Kabaddi League have become some of the most popular sports leagues in India, generating huge revenue and offering substantial financial benefits to talented sports persons.

He said that unfortunately, the benefits of these sports leagues have not yet reached Andaman and Nicobar Islands due to the absence of commercial training centers.

He mentioned that the youths of these islands are highly talented and have the potential to compete at the national and international level if they are given proper training. “They deserve recognition and opportunities to participate in high-profile leagues, such as Indian Premier League, Indian Super League, and Pro Kabaddi League,” he added.

Hence he requested the Lt. Governor to arrange for year-long training programs for the talented youths of Andaman and Nicobar Islands in Cricket, Football, and Kabaddi. “It is essential to bring National Level coaches from mainland India to provide the proper guidance and training to our youths. This training will enable them to showcase their talent and bring laurels for our islands,” he added.
