JAMMU: Government of Jammu and Kashmir has added to the woes of already suffering talented stuff in the football team of J&K Forest Department. Forest XI is considered to be one of the top departmental sides of J&K.
These players always enthralled the spectators who loved the game of football. But it has been unfortunate that those exceptional players have never received the due that they deserved during all these years.
After serving close to 16 years to J&K Forest Department their services were never regularized which has been a tragic occurrence for the football scenario in J&K.
“It is very unfortunate that their case has been rejected again by the authorities and has again been disregarded. We are very concerned over the issue and stand by with the players, securing and safe guarding their future who have given life to this game,” a representative of the National and International Footballers’ Forum (NIFF) said
Now, left with no other option, these players have last hope in the office of the Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha.
“We request the LG to look into this matter of grave concern and we hope that the justice will be done to these talented players who have been flag bearers for whole J&K in the game of football,” said chairman of NIFF, J&K, Bashir Ahmed Malik while pleading the players’ case.
