Scheme to enhance physical fitness of youth

KANNUR: Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said the government was planning to decentralise the activities of the Sports Council aimed at enhancing physical fitness of the youth in the State.

Inaugurating a seminar on sports development organised by the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) here on Sunday, Mr. Balakrishnan said the councils activities would be extended to panchayats and municipalities by linking local sports clubs and local bodies with the objective of ensuring total physical fitness.

Reports on the lack of physical fitness among the youth in the State forced the government to seriously consider schemes for enhancing fitness, he added.
