THE LONG-AWAITED construction of a pavilion at Maorj Dhayanchand Grounds at Barkatullah University is expected to get underway soon and it would be completed soon, as the Physical Education Department of the university has received an amount of Rs 15 lakh from MP fund of Prafulla Kumar Maheshwari. Besides, The department has Rs 60 lakh to spend on the pavilion.

Barkatullah University has the credit of organising a number of national-level tournaments. But lack of any changing room and sitting facility at the Maorj Dhayanchand Grounds has been a drawback creating problem for the players as well as the management. “It was a long-pending demand from the Physical Education Department, but the shortage of funds created hindrances in construction of the pavilion”, said BU Director Sports Akhilesh Sharma.

According to sources, the money will be utilised by the university in constructing a full-fledged pavilion at the ground. “It is a good news for the players and sports enthusiasts. I must thank Maheshwari for providing the required support”, said Sharma.

According to the blueprint of the pavilion, there will be two dressing rooms separated by a lobby. Tiers will be constructed along with the pavilion for the spectators. Separate bathrooms will be constructed for boys and girls.
Sharma said that the huge space available at the ground is ideal for constructing a big stadium of high standards.
