Chandigarh, July 12- A Gaushala will soon be constructed at Motilal Nehru School of Sports in Rai so as to provide nutritious diet of pure milk of cow, desi ghee, yogurt and butter to the students studying there.
While expressing gratitude of Sports and Youth Affairs Minister, Mr Anil Vij,the Principal and Director of the school, Mrs Bharti Arora said that it was because of his inspiration that such an important decision has been taken in the interest of the students. She said that tender are being invited for the construction of the Gaushala over an area of one acre.
Mrs Arora said that daily milk requirement of students studying in the school is about 500 liters. The milk which is procured from market is not of high quality and adversely affects the mind and body of players. Therefore, a decision was taken to construct Gaushala in the school. This would not only provide nutritious diet to sportspersons, but would also give pace to the Gau Sanrakshan and Gau Samvardhan drive initiated by Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal and Mr Anil Vij.
