Shri Manohar Parrikar,
The Hon’ ble Chief Minister of Goa
Subject: Closure of Stadiums for Election or other non sport activities
We refer to the news report appearing in the media wherein it is mentioned that Hon’ ble Goa Chief Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar has instructed the authorities not to allow the sports stadiums to be utilised for election purposes. We thank the Hon’ ble CM for this initiative and urge him to issue strict administrative order / directions / guidelines to the concerned authorities not to allow usage of stadiums / multipurpose sports halls for elections or other non- sports related activities henceforth.
The Government has taken excellent steps to build sports infrastructure in various parts of Goa which are being utilized by members / public and young and senior sports persons on a daily basis for their fitness and training regimes.
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of health and physical fitness in each one’s life today and maintaining regular exercise regimes is the ideal way to keep oneself fit and healthy and reduce hospitalization and medication.
Top players who represent Goa and aspire to make a career out of sports also utilize such facilities for their advanced training and closing the stadiums for long durations for carrying out election activities adversely affects the training regimes of athletes.
It is pertinent to mention that sports improves fitness and weight goals, encourages healthy lifestyles such as no smoking or drinking, cuts down on pressure and stress, boosts self-esteem, promotes team work and better bonding and brings various other benefits to the society.
Considering the above, we appeal to your good self to take immediate steps to disallow closure of sports stadiums for election or other non- sports related activities henceforth. We thank you for the support.
We, the undersigned signatories endorse the above petition.
