Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had announced that players who win medals in international level championships will be given direct recruitment in Government jobs.

He said that Madhya Pradesh has decided to do something different in the field of sports. Chief Minister Chouhan was addressing the gathering during the dedication of Abhinav Bindra 10 metre shooting range, 25 metre shooting range and administrative building at the Madhya Pradesh Shooting Academy. Sports and Youth Welfare Minister Yashodhara Raje Scindia, Olympic Gold Medalist Abhinav Bindra, National Rifle Association of India President Raninder Singh were present on the occasion.

CM Chouhan said that the players of the state have both talent and capacity. If they are provided with proper facilities, they can do wonders in their field. He said that the State’s players should represent the country in different games in 2020 Olympics.

He said that if there is determination and passion, nothing is impossible. He called upon the players to move forward and reach for the sky. CM Chouhan reviewed the newly-constructed shooting range and administrative building. Gold medalist Abhinav Bindra replied to queries of players and trainers of various academies. Bindra said that if there is ‘match pressure’ during the competition, one should accept it instead of running away from it. “Focus on the goal and be self-confident”, he said. He said that if during the training, they sense any mental pressure, they should challenge themselves and concentrate on their basics and technique. Sports and Youth Welfare Yashodhara Raje Scindia said that discipline helps in focusing on life and games.
