“The initiatives taken under the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi to develop schemes such as the Khelo India to develop and nurture the grassroots level talent are showing results in Championships like this,” he said.

“It is overwhelming to see so many of our youth across the country are bringing laurels across all sports and going forward, it gives us major hopes.

“I congratulate all the young archers and wish them all the luck in the competitions ahead. As they transition to the senior team, they shall be getting all the possible support to compete at the high-performance level,” he added.
