Speaking at the inauguration of Baba Ganganath Sports Complex, constructed by Delhi Development Authority, at Munirka, Mr Advani said since sports also determines the status of a country on the international arena, greater efforts by agencies such as DDA were needed for improving the situation.
The Union Urban Development Minister, Ananth Kumar, informed that DDA is constructing one more sports complex at Barthal in Dwarka.
Noting that in the past four years DDA has developed 65 parks, he said, 55 more parks will be developed by it in the next 18 months.
The president of All India Council of Sports and Member of Parliament, Vijay Kumar Malhotra, expressed happiness that the 13th sports complex of DDA has come up in a place which gave India the great international level swimmer, Khajan Singh.
Noting that the complex would provide open spaces, ladies' corner and children's corner to residents of nearby areas, he said it would also offer them a multi-gymnasium and a swimming pool.
The Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Vijai Kapoor, informed that the 2.29-hectare complex -- developed at a cost of Rs 3.25 crores and having a 2,500 seating capacity -- would be maintained and managed by former Defence personnel to provide a high level of efficiency and cleanliness.
