I welcome all those who have come to see the Kashmir Mega Football Tournament 2023 and who participated to encourage the players, said Vijay Kumar Bidhuri, Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir. Our children get courage just by seeing you. I am very thankful for your sense of encouragement, DC said. So far 32 teams have participated in the Kashmir Mega Football Tournament. The finals of Women Cricket Tournament also recently took place. All this is happening because you people have created this environment, said the DC addressing the people. The era of fear is gone. I can see happiness in the faces of players, said the Divisional Commissioner. It’s all thanks to you, there’s no doubt about it. The intent of this organisation is to provide such a platform in sports to fulfill the yearning in the youth as to how to progress ahead. It is our endeavour that the sports youth of Kashmir should one day represent the entire country at the Olympic level. There is talent among the youth, there is a need for a platform to highlight that talent. The example of this is in front here in the final football match happening, said an audience. Just like we have maintained peace in Kashmir, I want you all to help us fight out these drugs, said the DC. This is such a thing that if you get addicted to it, your whole life can be ruined. I am happy to be amongst you and I wish you many congratulations to all of you for your future, said the Divisional Commissioner of Kashmir, Vijay Kumar Bidhuri.
