When Ramesh met them on August 9, the girls had put in a request for a permanent football ground as their erstwhile practice spot, a private ground had been tilled — and a bus to facilitate their daily commute from their respective villages for the evening practice.
Five acres of government land has been earmarked in Dahu village, Ranchi. It will be developed into a playground under MNREGS.
“My department has already mandated at least one playground in every tribal village. The achievements of these girls will inspire several tribal sportsmen and women to play for the nation,” said Ramesh.
