Objective of Tamil Nadu Kalaignar Sports Kit Scheme

Sports as a movement have been altered by our state government. The goal of the Dravidian model of governance is that achievers should come from every family, not just wealthy families, and not just from urban areas.”

After Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu placed second in the overall medal count. This is the first time Tamil Nadu has been in the top three in the Khelo India games, and the success may be attributed to the measures the state government has made over the past year. Five of the eight medals that athletes who received assistance from the TN Champions Foundation were gold medals.

Benefits of Kalaignar Sports Kit Scheme

To develop athletic talent at the village level, a new programme called “Kalaignar Sports Kit” will be implemented. This scheme was announced at the Khelo India Youth Games 2023 valedictory celebration.

As part of the celebration of Kalaignar Karunanidhi’s 100th birthday, 12,000 village panchayats throughout the state would get athletic kits. On February 7 in Trichy, the first sports kit distribution under the programme will take place.

Position of Tamil Nadu in Khelo India Games
