STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: The sports facility of MA Stadium, which is yet to be completed by the construction agency, has been opened for all by its custodian, the J&K Sports Council (JKSC).The major sports facility renovated and upgraded, for the game of Cricket, by investing Rs 42 crores out of special funding from Government of India has been reduced to just a place to warm up for those athletes training at different Indoor facilities.The non-professional organisation of JKSC had earlier allowed local cricket events to take place at the upgraded facility and now the stadium has been opened for everyone, may be for those fitness enthusiasts and evening walkers.“The JKSC is confused over the use of the mega sports facility in Jammu. From IPL dream to local cricket tournaments and now allowing everyone to use the dream cricket stadium for warm-up sessions is something directionless on part of the Sports Council,” said a retired officer of the JKSC pleading not to be quoted.However, the veterans of the sports administration feel happy over the decision of the Sports Council. “It was our long pending demand not to make one of the major sports facilities in Jammu, the MA Stadium, exclusive for cricket. And, now, the JKSC has realised that every athlete needs the open space to warm up and train,” said President of the J&K Olympic Association, Dr Ashutosh Sharma.
