Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday visited proposed site for Delhi Sports University at Mundka village that will be developed to promote world-class training, research and academics in the field of sports as well as health and exercise.

"It will make India proud in the world of sports as young talents will bring in more medals in international sporting events like Olympics. It is the dream and vision of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to provide world-class facilities and training to our youth for advancing in the field of sports, Sisodia said.

Mundka's AAP MLA Dharampal Lakra and  Sisodia discussed the details of the area with officials. During the visit, Sisodia said that the Delhi Government passed the Delhi the Bill last year in the Delhi Legislative Assembly.

"The work for the university had been disrupted due to the ongoing pandemic but now we want to pick up the pace of work as it is our dream to provide world-class opportunities to our children and youth in the field of education and sports,” said Sisodia.

Sisodia said that it is the Delhi Government’s endeavour to ensure that the level of training and facilities at Delhi Sports University will be cutting-edge and so advanced that the best of best sports talents can come to train themselves in Delhi.

“Once this dream comes true, no world power will stop India from bringing in record-breaking gold medals in international sports competitions and events," he said.

“It is our aim to provide multidisciplinary teaching and training in sports to ensure sports professionals are better prepared for a wide-range of employment opportunities. This university will also promote public health through sports in academia and make it more accessible to the public," he added.
