International pro boxing competition organized at the historic Ridge Ground in Shimla in the memory of former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh concluded in Himachal Pradesh yesterday.
Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla inaugurated it. Apart from India, players from Vietnam, Russia, South Korea and Philippines showed their strength in this competition, there were a total of five matches in the competition, out of which Indian players won three matches.
The winning participant was given a prize of fifty one thousand rupees. The Governor said that youth can be kept away from drugs through sports and appreciated the organizers of the competition.
He said – addiction harms everyone. The more one remains detached from this addiction, the better it is. That’s why I have started a campaign against drugs in Himachal, which is the land of God. And I am slowly seeing that all the people irrespective of any political ideology? Are they joining too? Media is also getting involved, these players are also getting involved, because the most important thing for the players is victory and victory is completely defeated when they become victims of doping.
So intoxication itself does this to them through a provocation, so today I will appeal to them as well and I will appeal to the entire people of Himachal that the smugglers coming from other places who have spread this vicious cycle of intoxication should take it in the form of a fight and stop it. defeat,
State Congress President Pratibha Singh and Public Works Minister Vikramaditya Singh were also present on the occasion. Vikramaditya Singh said that Rural Olympiad will be organized soon in the state to attract the youth towards sports.
He said that multi-country halls will be established in every area of the state and games will be organized in them. We are also going to conduct Rural Olympiad inside Himachal Pradesh, so that too has started from today. In the coming time, we will organize rural Olympiad on a large scale in every corner of the state and we will try to organize it in his name.
So today it has started and many of our good players have come here from the country as well as from abroad. So there will be good competition here. We all together have to look into the campaign that has been started against drug addiction because there is a need to pull out the youth from somewhere who are falling prey to drugs.
