the state accounts for just 21 per cent of the country’s population Sakshi Malik from Rohtak made sure that Haryana was represented on the Olympic podium in the third consecutive Games India would be best served if other states as well as the current government in Haryana can learn from the achievements of the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government Haryana’s success lies in understanding that achieving sporting excellence requires long-term planning More than a decade ago Haryana launched a policy to identify and promote sporting talent This involves a sports and physical aptitude test that is mandatory for all school students in the state Students are required to undergo a series of physical tests that ascertain their physical potential The top performers become eligible for stipends ranging from Rs 1500 per month to Rs 2000 per month (14-19 years) They are also provided free national-level coaching sports equipment and access to government infrastructure Haryana authorities also focused on creating new sports infrastructure especially in rural areas During this period Haryana became the first state to set up modern sports stadiums in each of its administrative blocks Two hundred and twenty-six Rajiv Gandhi sports complexes at the block levels were built and augmented with 232 rural sports stadiums at the village-level Six international level sports complexes were built at the district-level The focus was on ensuring that the coaches and support staff at the stadiums were passionate about their job However the most essential aspect of the Haryana model derives from the idea that even relatively modest sporting success should ensure livelihoods to sportspersons when they hang up their boots Haryana became the first state in the country to launch the “padak lao pad pao” scheme — career opportunities in the government sector were guaranteed to the medal winners in the Olympics Commonwealth Games Asian Games other international events and the National Games Over 500 players from the state have been employed by the Haryana Police Department Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt boxer Vijender Singh the captain of the women’s hockey team Mamta Kharab and the captain of the men’s hockey team Sardara Singh cricketer Joginder Sharma are serving Haryana Police DSPs Hopefully Sakshi Malik will join them soon Hundreds of lesser-known sportspersons are also serving with the Haryana Police — and other government departments Yogeshwar Dutt was in fact appointed as a DSP in the Haryana Police based on his potential four years before he won India an Olympic medal We need to give our champions “tireless support” and not just demand “ruthless implementation” if we want to them to be world-beaters Let’s celebrate their wins but not abandon them when they disappoint us — and themselves The writer is Congress MP from Rohtak Haryana For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News This is also the time when the proposed half marathon is scheduled to start.New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday sought a response from the city government producers believe it won’t do well commercially.
