No High hopes for Sports Budget 2016-2017

It is heartbreaking to see that there are no noticeable changes or announcements for sports in the State Budget 2016-2017. There have been no announcement for the sports related schemes in the country and nor there is any kind of increase in the budget for various kinds of sports being played in the country.

The Ministry of Inter-provincial Coordination (IPC) is also not given any kind of news regarding an increase in the sports budget. In addition, there has been no budget for the maintenance and construction of new sports sites, stadiums, academies, etc.

It is unfortunate to hear all this in the current budget because the situation of the national sports is not good at all. Whether it is cricket or hockey, every national sport is suffering from serious setbacks. There is the evil of political influence in every national sports field, which does not really allow sports bodies to work properly in the right direction.

There have been insulting defeats in cricket due to professional loopholes in the cricket team. National budget 2016-2017 did not reveal any financial decisions to improvise cricket in Pakistan. Other than cricket, no financial measures have been taken to improvise regional sports as well.

There are varieties of sports played in Pakistan, which are restricted to different regions of the country. One such sport is polo. Every year, sports authorities anticipate that there would be some kind of financial assistance to promote the sports beyond regions but like every time, this time too, they are disappointed.

Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
