Playground in Villages under IAP Districts-Rural Development Ministry
The proposal to build one playground in each village, falling under the 60 Integrated Action Plan (IAP) districts under the MGNREGS works was approved by the Union Rural Development Authority. The playground would be used for games like football, volleyball, hockey and kabbadi. The decision was taken with an aim to revitalize sports for the tribal boys and girls in the 60 left-wing extremist-affected districts where the Integrated Action Plan (IAP) has been carried out.
The aim is not just to spread the span of sports and games to cover all the tribals but also to ablactate them away from being intercepted by the Naxalite outfits in these districts. The Gram Panchayat will be the responsible to supply the land and implement the building of the playground.
