For promoting sports culture in the state, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today said that the SAD-BJP government is coming up with a job policy under which the players performing well in their respective disciplines would automatically become eligible for a government job.
He said a new job policy in this regard would be discussed during the Cabinet Meeting on December 16.
The Deputy CM said that this would not only promote sports culture in the state but would also save the sportspersons from getting harassed.
“Besides, we are also in the process of hiring national and international coaches, who would train the sportspersons. My main aim is that the Indian contingent for 2016 Olympics should have maximum participation from Punjab,” said the Deputy CM while addressing a gathering at Sri Guru Arjun Dev Ji Sports Stadium at Chohla Sahib here.
