Imphal, May 02 2022: While expressing confidence that proper utilisation of training and academic facilities of the National Sports University (NSU) will be of immense help to Manipur and its sportspersons excel in the international sport arena, Union minister of Culture, Tourism and DoNER G Kishan Reddy declared that the Union government is committed to ensure completion of structural components of the NSU at the earliest possible time.

The Union minister, who arrived here on Monday on a two-day state visit to take part in the Manipur leg of the ongoing Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav: North East Festival, being celebrated across all the eight north-eastern states, also disclosed that implementing agency of the NSU is targeting to complete construction of the permanent campus within 30 months.

However, the Centre would like to complete it at the earliest possible time, he affirmed.

Soon after his arrival, Kishan Reddy inaugurated the Inter-state Truck Terminus (ISTT) at Sekmai in Imphal West district through virtual mode from Khuman Lampak Sports Complex.

The ISTT is a project taken up jointly by the Manipur government and North Eastern Council (NEC) at a cost of Rs 12.287 crore.

The Union minister inaugurated the project in the presence of officials of the state government and NEC.

It was followed by a review meeting on the progress of works of the ongoing development of the permanent campus of the National Sports University at Koutruk in Imphal West district.

Later, talking to reporters, Reddy iterated that in-spite of the implementing agency setting 30 months' target to complete the project, the Centre is keen to wind up the task within the shortest possible time.

Kishan Reddy also inspected the infrastructures and other facilities at the temporary campus of the NSU at Khuman Lampak Sport Complex, followed by opening of the final football match of the North East Regional Sports Week at the main stadium of the sport complex.

Speaking at the opening function of the match, the Union minister expressed optimism that the country will shine in the world of sports once the university is fully functional as the varsity will have world class facilities.

Further stating that Centre had chosen the right place for setting up the university, he noted that Manipur is the power house of sports in India.

Once the university is fully functional, Manipur will be the meeting point of not only the country's sportspersons but also of the globe and consequently make Manipur the sports hub, maintained the Union minister.

On Tuesday, Kishan Reddy is scheduled to attend the inauguration function of a badminton tournament at DM University campus, which is also a part of the ongoing festival.

Before concluding his two-day visit, the Union minister will review tourism projects being implemented at INA complex and Loktak Lake at Moirang of Bishnupur district.

The Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav: North East Festival is being organised by the Union DoNER ministry with the spirit of "Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahi".

The country is currently celebrating 75 years of its Independence, her glorious history, people, culture and achievements during the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav and DoNER ministry is highlighting the beauty of the north-eastern region and its achievements in various fields through this festival.

Similar events, on varied themes, are being held in various capital cities of the eight northeast states under the ongoing festival.
