After a long wait Trichy is getting an Indoor Stadium completed in Anna Stadium Complex in kajamalai. Although it is only an assurance from the State Sports minister, it is some hope in the place of despair. The initial budget was for 1.78 crores and the assurance is it will be completed within a year. It is a long journey for the stadium from Sanction in 2001 , Addikal nattu vizha in 2003 and assurance in 2007 to be completed in 2008.
Wow ! 7 years to complete a stadium which will also contain an athletic hostel and a swimming pool but no Synthetic turf for Athletic events. I don’t know what is the plan for track and field events. So much so for encouraging sports among young people.
This echoes the sentiment ” Padikirra Pulaingalukku vilayattu ethukku.. Vilaiyatta Naalaikku vanthu Soru poda poguthu “
