Hyderabad: GHMC Commissioner Dr. B. Janardhan Reddy informed that the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation would conduct summer coaching camps in 2,000 centres with 55 various types of games this year.
The GHMC is the only corporation in the entire country which has been conducting summer coaching camps for the last so many years to encourage students in the field of sports.
Dr. Janardhan Reddy said summer coaching camps could not be conducted last year due to various reasons which disappointed thousands of students. However, he said this year the coaching camps were being conducted at a grand scale. He directed the officials of the sports wing to get ready for the coaching camps and provide all play materials / apparatus at all the play grounds of GHMC. Apart from this, the GHMC is also planning to take up various types of civic works and also to involve Residential Welfare Associations, Youth Organizations and also for the officials use of Ward Committee meeting at the Community hall.
The GHMC is also planning to lease out the play grounds to the schools to run their sports activities in the play grounds as the most of the schools does not have sufficient space to provide play grounds. In this regard, the GHMC is coordinating with the various educational institutions and the proposals are in the process.
Dr. Janardhan Reddy also informed that the GHMC would provide jobs to nearly 2,000 youth as part of 100 Days Action Plan.
