Col. Rajyavardhan Rathore sets historic precedence for encouragement of traditional Games of the country

Union Minister of State for Youth
Affairs and Sports (I/C) Col Rajyavardhan Rathore has approved the
participation of Kho Kho team from India at the First International Kho
Kho Championship in England from 1st to 4th September,
2018, with financial support from the Government of India. Financial
support for participation of the Kho Kho team in an International event
has been approved for the first time in relaxation of extant guidelines
of the Ministry which, inter-alia, lay down that sports disciplines like
Kho Kho, which are categorised as “Others”, will not be eligible for
financial support for participation in International sporting events.

The decision to provide financial
support to the Kho Kho Federation of India for participation in the
First International Kho Kho Championship in England has been taken with a
view not only to give fillip to this traditional Indian sports and
sportspersons but also to pave the way for its future mainstreaming at
the International level and its possible inclusion in multi-disciplinary
sporting events like the Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, Olympics,
etc.
