VIJAYAWADA:The Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh (SAAP) has decided to set up their headquarters in Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium and sent a representation to the government seeking permission for it.

Briefing mediapersons at IGMC here on Thursday on resolutions passed at the second board meeting of SAAP, chairman PR Mohan said that the Authority would form a sub-committee to regularise outsourced employees in the 13 districts and will make efforts to provide all incentives to the 13 district permanent employees of SAAP.

“Unlike every year, certain rules will be followed while recruiting coaches and preference would be given to national and international players. We also decided to reopen sports schools and academies that have remained closed for the past many years across the state,” he said.

Speaking about the food courts on the premises of the stadium, Mohan said that the food courts will not entertained on the premises at any cost as they are spoiling the environment of the place.  The authority also requested the state government to allocate 1,200 acres to develop sports infrastructure in the capital region and they are planning to submit a bid to seek permission to conduct the 2019 National Games, as the state has better chances for approval due to unfavourable conditions in Uttarakhand. K Malleswari, B Hanumanth Rao, S Geetha and M Ravindra Babu were present.
