Addressing the gathering, N Biren Singh said that there is still enough space for further expansion and development of the complex.

The Chief Minister said that development of the complex began with just Rs 1.40 crore.

He also mentioned the development of various sports infrastructures in different parts of the State in the past four and half years by the present Government and stressed the need for prioritizing sports disciplines which are suitable to the physique of the State natives.
