In yet another instance of the alleged official apathy, the multi-purpose Indoor sports hall at polo ground Srinagar is awaiting its completion for past four years.
The foundation stone of the indoor sports hall was laid by the then Minister for Medical Education, Youth services and sports, Taj Mohi-ud-din on 2013.
The hall was set to be completed in six months.
However, Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council(JKSSC) has failed to complete the work on the Indoor sports hall on time.
The Indoor Sports hall was approved at the cost of 1.82 crore and it has facilities for playing many indoor games.
The officials informed that the work was stopped several times , thereby resulted in delay in completion of the work.
They said that the work has started again and hopefully this time it will be completed fully.
”The building material for the Indoor sports hall is spread all over the Polo Ground which is very pathetic. Polo Ground was once one of the beautiful playgrounds of the valley but now it is in shambles”, Basit a Football player said.
Despite repeated attempts no one in the JKSSC was available for the comments about the Indoor Sports hall.
