Srinagar,February 7,2017 CNS: The Kabadi players from Kashmir Valley Tuesday alleged that Sports Council of Jammu Kashmir is hell bent to ruin their careers. They said that Sports Council of Jammu Kashmir has been giving undue importance to those sports categories that are not even recognized.

    Scores of talented Kabadi players from Kashmir Valley told CNS that Sports Council of Jammu Kashmir has neither been calling them for trials nor giving any importance to them. “We had gone to Jammu for national trials but the Sports Council of Jammu Kashmir didn’t conduct our screening there and we were asked to proceed to Valley,” they said.

    The players said that Kabadi is an international game that is recognized globally but due to unknown reasons the sports bodies from Jammu and Kashmir have been ignoring it and giving importance to unrecognized games. “Most of the medals secured by some kids from Kashmir have come from unrecognized games and it seems that Sports Bodies are giving importance to unrecognized games because it is easy for them to secure medals in these categories,” they alleged.

    Despite repeated attempts, Secretary Sports Council of Jammu Kashmir could not be contacted. (CNS)
