Young talent being demoralised: UTTA

Excelsior Sports Correspondent
UDHAMPUR, Aug 17: Expressing anguish over the irresponsible behaviour of the concerned sports authorities of Udhampur District, members of Udhampur Table Tennis Association (UTTA) alleged that District Sports Officer Udhampur has completely misled the selected Table Tennis players for Inter District Championship, scheduled to be held at Leh from tomorrow.
While addressing the media persons, Working President UTTA, Tarun blamed that the concerned authorities despite continuous visit of the players to the office, have totally failed to inform them about any update of tournament, adding that they asked them to skip the tournament and also gave silly excuses that the Department has no funds for participation, which is completely unacceptable rather against the sanctity and spirit of sports.
Tarun said that such a system puts a question mark on the working style of the officers and officials of the Department.
Ankit Sharma, Vice President and Prikshit Khajuria, Joint Secretary also expressed concern over the jaundiced system of the Department.
UTTA members warned the authorities of strong protest if early action is not taken in this regard.
Sunny Sharma, Senior Vice President, Akash Sharma and Balvinder singh were also present during the Press Conference.
