UK-based Punjab-origin businessman Lord Diljit Rana has shown interest in investing in state, particularly in the fields of education and sports.
Lord Diljit, honorary consul of India, Northern Ireland, called upon chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh here on Friday and extended support for setting up setting up a centre of excellence for education and sports in his native village Sanghol in Fatehgarh Sahib, for the benefit of rural children.
He apprised the CM that they had already set up a football academy of international standards in collaboration with Southall Football Club at Sanghol to groom budding players for national as well as international football championships. International coaches would be drawn from other countries for training of local coaches, and the youth would be provided international exposure through matches with foreign teams, he said.
