During his two-day visit to Manipur, he visited the University site and addressed the gathering. He said that the idea for the establishment of the NSU was not just as a small institute or just a centre for sports, but a ‘symbolic’ one, as people from different parts of India and across the world would come to the university.
It is to be noted that the University will include courses like sports medicine, technology, students’ welfare, etc.
Taking this to his social media handle, Kiren Rijiju tweeted, “Visited the site of proposed NATIONAL SPORTS UNIVERSITY in Manipur and took a review meeting on the spot location. Most of the technical issues are settled. Now, the administrative process will be expedited without further delay. We’re Committed to make NSU, a World class.”
To ensure that every sportsperson, including the pass outs from the NSU is not left jobless with the introduction of a good sports policy, Rijiju also sought public cooperation in the construction of NSU in Imphal.
The Minister also said that he would consult the concerned authorities in the corporate world to visit various sports institutions in across India and identify sportspersons and engage them in jobs under different capacities, such as players, coach or trainers.
