Being a long-pending demand, people across the sector proposed the development of the hall to the district magistrate (DM), Gautam Buddh Nagar, following which he forwarded residents' request to the department concerned of the state.
Shilpi Pandey, deputy director with the Prantiya Rakshak Dal wrote a letter to the Department of Youth Welfare (UP) in this regard.
“The department should consider the letter given by Vinod Kumar, under secretary (Govt of India) in which he has instructed that a proposal report for construction of a multi-purpose hall in Sector 137 should be submitted to the state government,” Pandey added.
She further said that besides, the department of sport in urban India, this facility can be developed under Central Govt's 'Khelo India' programme.
Talking to City Spidey on the subject, Abhist Gupta, a resident of the sector said, “The population here is increasing as vacant flats are being occupied by the respective owners in various societies. Though there are small halls for kids to play, a dedicated space like a multipurpose hall for the purpose of playing indoor games and social gathering is currently not available. We hope that it is built as soon as possible so that people do not have to travel far for sporting activities and events.”
Sector 137 of Noida has more than 10 big societies where over 50,000 people reside.TAGS: Noida news / local news / Sector 137 / residents / multipurpose hall / district magistrate / GB Nagar / demand / proposal / sports / sporting activities and events / gathering / kids / people / Khelo India / department of youth welfare
