News18 Rajasthan launches special initiative 'Khel Se Kholo Kismat'

The initiative aims to strengthen the sporting infrastructure and facilities of Rajasthan.

Mumbai: Rajasthan has produced some of the best athletes like Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Krishna Poonia, Apurvi Chandela, and Devendra Jhajharia who have represented India at global meets. However, the lack of proper sporting infrastructure and facilities has contributed to the lack

of more sporting talents and sports in the state. Recently, the state sports ministry has announced many initiatives to overcome these challenges and transform the sports ecosystem. To give further momentum to the government’s initiative and to contribute to making Rajasthan a sporting

powerhouse, News18 Rajasthan has launched a special campaign called 'Khel Se Kholo Kismat.'

The campaign will be launched on Monday at 2 p.m on News18 Rajasthan. The launch will be graced by the presence of minister for sports and youth affairs of Rajasthan Ashok Chandana; Olympian and Congress MLA Krishna Pooniya; Tokyo Paralympics gold medalist Avani Lekhra; Paralympics double gold medalist Devendra Jhajhariya; Asian Games medalist Raju Lal Chaudhary,  and Tokyo Paralympics gold medalist Krishna Nagar.

News18 Rajasthan will identify four major regions in the state that have abundant talent but lack sporting facilities across different levels – schools, colleges, government facilities, or even traditional sports facilities like akhadas. The channel will do special shows and stories from these regions highlighting the issue as well as interviews with the concerned leaders and other important members of the administration.
