At the ‘Kashi Tamil Sangamam’ event, Union Minister for Information & Broadcasting and Youth Affairs & Sports Shri Anurag Thakur said that two cultures are uniting through literature, culture, and sports. As part of the eight-day-long “Kashi Tamil Sangamam – Sports Summit”, he inaugurated the friendly Table Tennis match organized today.
Shri Anurag Thakur inspected the Sigra Stadium in Varanasi and reviewed the upgradation. He proposed changes to improve the quality of the stadium upgrade.
He also audited the space of various offices of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting in Varanasi. After he arrived in Kashi, he went to the Vishwanath Temple to pray.
“In the ‘Kashi Tamil Sangamam’ event, various programs of literature and culture are taking place,” said Shri Anurag Thakur, addressing the gathering.
The initiative to connect North and South through sports is also happening. More than 1000 years ago, our ancient traditions linked North and South.
The Prime Minister was thanked by Shri Thakur for his initiative of Kashi Tamil Sangamam and it was said that through this grand event, the vision of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’ is being realized.
He also said that the enthusiasm which is being seen among the players today is the same passion seen among the players of participating teams from Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
Shri Thakur said that not only are the people of Tamil Nadu getting an opportunity to visit ‘Kashi Vishwanath’ but they are also getting acquainted with the art and culture of this place – a matter of pride for all. He interacted with players from Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
