Badal, “It’s my dream to take Kabaddi to Olympics one day so now it’s not just a sport for me, it has become my passion of life for the sports welfare”
Much to the joy of the sports lovers and villagers in Punjab, World Cup Kabaddi would be back again in coming winter season of 2018. Watching the love of people for the sports of Kabaddi in India and abroad former deputy chief Minister claimed to organize the next World Cup Kabaddi. He declared this big decision during ‘Pol Khol Rally’ of the Shiromani Akali Dal leaders at Mullanpur-Dakha today.Pointing towards the stoppage of development works and promotion of sports in Punjab by Congress just due to political reasons is not a good gesture. As Sukhbir Singh Badal stressing upon insecurities of current Punjab Government over Akali Dal’s successful sports event of World Cup Kabaddi said, “Congress government just talk big of promoting the sports as they discontinued most famous sports in the Punjab and worldwide renowned event world cup Kabaddi only due to the reason that it was started under Shiromani Akali Dal Government.”Talking further on this issue, Badal voiced, “The decision of congress government to discontinue World Cup Kabaddi clearly shows that they are not at all concerned to promote famous rural sports of Kabaddi which is now worldwide renowned and like by foreigners also. They are just bothered to settle the scores with Shiromani Akali Dal leaders by discontinuing the World Cup Kabaddi which Akali Dal was continuously doing for the promotion of famous rural sports of Punjab worldwide.Badal further claimed that he is getting calls from the foreign country teams and clubs that why the world cup kabaddi has been discontinued in the last season. “I just informed the foreigners that now their government is not in the power so the opposition party, which is now in the power is reluctant to continue the sports big event which was started under their government”, voiced Sukhbir Singh Badal.He further making a big announcement said, ‘For the promotion of sports and to take famous rural sport of Punjab, Kabaddi to Olympics now Shiromani Akali Dal will organize World Cup Kabaddi from coming winter season. We don’t believe in the enmity but in promotion of sports for welfare of the sports and sportspersons.” Speaking on World Cup kabaddi, Sukhbir Badal further said, “I started world cup kabaddi just to take our rural famous sports on world calendar so that people show know these sports. It’s my dream to take Kabaddi to Olympics one day so now it’s not just a sport for me, it has become my passion of life for the sports welfare.”It is pertinent to mention that first World Cup Kabaddi was organized in 2011 by the Shiromani Akali Dal. It was the mastermind of former Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal who put rural sports of Punjab, Kabaddi on world map. The last World Cup kabaddi was organized in the year 2016 under the Shiromani Akali Dal. It was not just sports but full entrainment extravaganza, day , it was a blend of pollywood, bollywood and sports. But after constitution of Congress in the Punjab world cup Kabaddi was discontinued in 2017 much to disappointment of everyone.
Kabaddi player from Sahnewal, Jagtar Singh said, “I am very happy for the announcement of World Cup Kabaddi in 2018 by SAD. I am glad that Sukhbir Badal thought differently and above politics for the welfare of sportspersons. On the other hand congress did not think about sportspersons, but only for their own self. They just satisfied their ego by discontinuing the world cup kabaddi. We are eagerly waiting to participate in the World Cup Kabaddi again in coming winters.”
