NATIONAL SPORTS DAY 2021: LUDHIANA INDOR STADIUM Lacks facilities, no electricity connection in 6 years


The Municipal Corporation built an indoor stadium on Pakhowal Road at a cost of Rs. 85 crore, but in six years the Corporation could not even get electricity connection in it. Due to this, there was no activity in the stadium. The stadium was constructed in 2016 during the SAD-BJP government. The municipal corporation had also set up 74 shops inside the stadium to cover the cost of running it from there, but in six years neither the shops were rented nor any sports activities could be held inside the stadium.

In those six years, the stadium hosted only two events. The municipal corporation leases the stadium to private individuals to run the program. For this, the fare has been fixed at around Rs. One lakh. At the same time, the cost of one day’s generator for hosting the program in this stadium is around Rs. Two lakhs. Despite the high cost of rent and generators, no one rents the stadium. Wrestling was held only once in the name of sports activities, while the stadium was built for competitions such as basketball, badminton, table tennis, taekwondo and volleyball.
