    No heed by Govt. of Odisha for development of weightlifting infrastructure in Odisha.

    Dear Members,

    The weightlifters of Odisha are performing supervly both in national and international level. The successful performence of Odiya Weightlifters in recent past commonwealth games, asian games and national weightlifting championship proves their skill. It is very sad that we are not having good infrastructure facilities in Odisha for weightlifters as compared to other states. They are always raising complaints for better infrastructure facilities and coaching institutes. But govt. of Odisha is not paying any heed to their complaints. Govt. is not doing anything for encouragemnt of the weightlifters.

    If Govt. of Odisha brings improvement in infrastructure facilities, then the weightlifters of Odisha would perform much better in both national and international events and bring glory for Odisha and India as a whole.

    Dear Krishna,

    I agreed with your statement. Many states including our Tamil Nadu are not responding and not to give more importance to the athletic games like Running, Weightlifting, Swimming etc.. The persons are belongs to these games are never gets proper help by the state government. The same problem is not only in Odisha and also in our state. The state and central governments are giving more importance to games like Cricket, Hockey and other outdoor games. This government gives more facilities and funds to these games and players only. It is OK and good, at the same time the government should look about the other games and players to perform well.

    This practice should be changed in future, All the state governments of India and central government should take necessary actions to improve the facilities and provide enough funds to this players in weightlifting, Swimming etc.. It is also true that these players will bring many medals and laurels to the state in future.

    With regards,
