Speaking on the occasion of Presentation and felicitation function for “Inter University Medallist and Inter-Collegiate Sports Champions” for the year 2012-2013 organized by Mangalore Vishwavidya Nilaya at University’s new senate Auditorium he said in his guest speech that today social value oriented sports is offering preference to outsiders at the cost of local talents. Now a day it has been brought to our knowledge that some colleges by inviting talents from other states imparting training and converting them to be an excellent sports personalities. Due to this trend of grooming students from other states local talents are being sidelined and deprived of their opportunities he regretted.
With this attitude of Vishwavidya nilaya and colleges real and genuine local sports personalities will not get an opportunity in the state and international level and thereby potential will be value less he said in his speech.
