Srinagar, Dec 27: Jammu and Kashmir High Court has asked the Government to resolve issues hampering Sher-i-Kashmir Sports Stadium work and provide sufficient number of coaches and adequate sports infrastructure to cater to the needs of the Union Territory.

The directions were issued by Chief Justice, Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Sindhu Sharma while hearing a petition seeking adequate sports infrastructure in the Union territory of J&K. The HC observed that a compliance report has been filed by J&K Cricket Association, wherein certain difficulties have been pointed out in completion of the construction work of the Sher-i-Kashmir Sports Stadium.

“This status report be placed before the Secretary, Department of Home of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, who may hold a meeting with the Chief Executive Officer, JKCA, and find out a way of resolving all the matters so that the construction work of Sher-i-Kashmir Sports Stadium can be completed” the HC ordered adding that a report in this regard shall be placed before us by or before next date.

Meanwhile, referring to another status report filed by government respondents,   the HC observed that the report discloses that for 28 sports disciplines, there are a total of 77 coaches.

“By no stretch of imagination, can this be considered sufficient to meet the needs of Union Territory of J&K. Furthermore, perusal of the status report shows that no specific details regarding completion of projects and sports infrastructure have been given” the Court observed.

With these observations, the HC ordered that “Respondents shall undertake a detailed assessment of the number of coaches which are needed for various sports disciplines and also undertake a close monitoring of the construction projects which are underway. A status report regarding infrastructure development, which is underway, shall be placed before us by the next date of hearing.”

“The respondents shall also place a projection of the ideal number of coaches which are required in every sports discipline as well as a proper scheme by which the training of such coaches would be effected and a timely” the HC ordered.
