Sportspersons from Karnataka, who participated in the recent Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham, and the 75 sportspersons selected from the State for the Amrit Sports Adoption Programme in Vidhana Soudha, were felicitated and he said the State Government has realised that sportspersons need security and was prepared to support them.

“Sportspersons and athletes must always remember that they were taking part in sports events to represent and win medals for the country. You can leave the rest to us and the government is ready to honour and reward you based on your performance,’’ Bommai said.

Karnataka is the first State to implement the Sports Adoption Programme, he said pointing out that the government has been taking steps for the development of sports grounds in the State.

The Chief Minister said the government has decided to recognise basketball as the State’s Game. With a view to identifying and selecting talented sportspersons from rural areas, the government has decided to organise a rural sports meet in the next two months.

“You have been chosen to represent the country and must participate in sporting events and games and win medals,’’ Bommai told the 75 adopted sportspersons and said:”Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched the Khelo India initiative and when do well it will lead to Jeetho India,” he said.

Youth Empowerment and Sports Minister Narayan Gowda, Sports Department Additional Chief Secretary Shalini Rajneesh and Karnataka Olympics Association President Govind Raj and others were present.
