Recently LG Manoj Sinha while inaugurating a sports event said that our sincere effort is to provide an environment of encouragement and adequate resources so that every talented sports person can give spectacular performance in the national and international events. We are committed to take every possible step to develop a strong winner’s instinct among our sportspersons.

This championship should not be viewed as an event that is only about winning. Participation with the spirit of sportsmanship is important. As a one big united family, celebrate the success of others as much as you celebrate yours.
