Govt jobs for medal-winning players in Bihar:

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has promised government jobs for sportspersons winning medals while representating the state at national and international events.

Addressing a function organised by the state art and youth affairs department to felicitate players on the occasion of 'khel diwas' here yesterday, the Chief Minister said the state government would guarantee jobs for players who won medals and brought pride to the state while participating in national and international events.

"Such prominent medalists from the state need not apply for jobs forthwith as the state government itself will go to them offering jobs on the pattern of private sectors," Kumar said.

He announced that the state government would increase the sports quota in the government services.

The Chief Minister also released the state sports promotion policy on the occasion.

Stressing the need for creating an atmosphere conducive for promotion of sports in Bihar, Kumar said the state government was making all-possible efforts to improve the infrastructure for sports.
