Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur launched the mascot ‘Dhakad’ together with the official logo and official jersey of the Fourth Khelo India Youth Games at Panchkula on Saturday and admired the effort of Haryana to host the games.
Thakur was accompanied by Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar, Haryana deputy CM Dushyant Chautala and Haryana Sports Minister Sandeep Singh during the ceremony. The conclusion of the Khelo India University Games was seen last week and Thakur had the opinion that Haryana will set an example in hosting the fourth edition of the Khelo India Youth Games from June 4 to June 13 at Panchkula and other cities.
“The mascot of the games is ‘Dhakad’ and I am sure that these games will also be Dhakad. The brain behind Khelo India Games are the one of Prme Minister Narendra Modi and his plan of how to take India forward in sports. The Khelo India University Games at Bengaluru saw the participation of more than 3,500 players and a total of 7,500 players and officials.”
“The fourth edition of Khelo India Youth Games will see more than 8,500 participating players. While there were two traditional games included in Khelo India University Games, we have also brought up five traditional games like gatka, thang-ta, kalarippayattu, mallakhamb and yogasana in Khelo India Youth Games. Apart from these, players will showcase their talent in 20 sports disciplines,” said Thakur during the ceremony.
Previously, the games were scheduled to occur in October-November last year before they were postponed to February this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The games, which are to be conducted in 25 sports disciplines including five indigenous disciplines, will be held in Shahbad, Ambala, Chandigarh, Panchkula and Delhi.
During the launch of the official mascot on Saturday, players like Tokyo Paralympics silver medallist Yogesh Kathuniya, boxer Amit Panghal, athlete Manjeet Chahal, shooter Manu Bhaker, archer Ridhi and other players were present.
“In the Khelo India University Games last week, two national records were broken, along with 20 other records. Swimmers such as Srihari Nataraj and Maana Patel and many more players showed their talent in Khelo India games and later went on to compete at the world level, including the Olympics. The Ministry of Sports is investing more than Rs 144 crore on the training of 2,300 Khelo India athletes and our attempt is to give chance to everyone in the country. I am sure that the fourth edition of the Khelo India Youth Games will also see many records being broken with the arrival of new talents. I wish all the players luck for competing in the games,” Thakur added.
Haryana CM ML Khattar advised all the departments to be working smoothly in order to make the games a success. “While the fourth edition of the Khelo India Youth Games were postponed earlier, the extra time has given us more time to prepare. With 28 days remaining for the beginning of the games, all the preparations and infrastructure have been completed and we welcome players from all over the country to provide their best. I also advise all the departments along with the sports department to work in order and make these games successful,” said Khattar.
Haryana Sports Minister Sandeep Singh also wished the players. “The games are finally going to happen after the delay due to Covid-19. Khelo India Games infuse confidence among players and I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur for providing Haryana the opportunity to host such games. This is the first time that Haryana is hosting the national games and we will make sure that it’s a memorable experience for the players as well as the officials,” said Singh.
