New Delhi: The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports, Mr Vijay Goel has said that to impart the desired importance to sports , it is essential that sports is made a compulsory subject at the school level and marks are given to students for their involvement in sports activities. Addressing the 64th meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) here today (25 Oct 2016) he said, we should take effective steps to promote it in educational institutions without any further delay.
