Imphal: Open gyms will be installed at Khuman Lampak Sports Complex and other sporting venues after identifying feasibility of installation with respect to the venues.
The step is taken up to make sportspersons and youth avail the opportunity of using gym at mass, Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh said on Thursday while interacting with reporters at Khuman Lampak Sports Complex, here.
The chief minister who was a footballer and lover of sports has been endeavouring to promote sports and youth in the state in different aspects.
He had in the past expressed worry of losing locality playgrounds with the trend construction of community halls at locality lawns.
Biren has been commanding his War on Drugs mission since he first became the chief minister of Manipur. He dreams of a healthy and drug free Manipur with promotion of sports, which being a major option.
He also appealed to organisations not to split into two, and appealed to splitted organisations to come under one umbrella to work together without complexity.
