He said that after getting permission from the Chief Education Officer and Principals of different Schools, training sessions are being organised.
“We have started clubs in different villages as well so as to train youth of the district,” he said. “If there will be proper infrastructure in the district, our youth are so talented that nobody can compete with them.”
