Sportspersons raised demand of their representation in the Bharatiya Janata Party during Assembly Elections. BJP played a significant role in promotion sports in Madhya Pradesh by raising annual sports budget by many folds and developed sports infrastructure throughout the State. Representation of sportsmen in the State Legislative Assembly will definitely prove fruitful in desired sports promotion and facilitation of players to bring the State on top in national sports arena. A senior sportsman and social worker, Rajkumar Choubey expressed the need of giving representation to sportspersons in Bharatiya Janata Party to raise voice of players in the State Legislative Assembly. He said that the party is paying special attention on every sector but sport is yet to be given any kind of representation in the party. Candidature of sportsmen in elections will not only boost morale of players but also benefit the party in elections.

Choubey extended appeal towards senior leaders and office-bearers of Bharatiya Janata Party for candidature of sportsmen in any constituency of Mahakoshal. He added that the vision of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi for giving responsibility of Sports Ministry to former Olympian Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is showing a new way to the sports promotion.
