    PM Imran Khan orders formulation of ‘task force’ on sports

    Prime Minister Imran Khan today chaired a briefing on Inter-Provincial Coordination Ministry at the Prime Minister’s Office.

    Minister IPC Fehmida Mirza, Secretary IPC Jamil Ahmed, Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board Ehsan Mani and senior government officials were present during the meeting.

    Secretary IPC Jamil Ahmed briefed the Prime Minister about the functions of the ministry and performance of various attached departments including Pakistan Sports Board, Pakistan Cricket Board, Inter Board Committee of Chairman, Pakistan Veterinary Medical Council, National Academy of Performing Arts and National Internship Program.
    Improvement in sports top priority, says PM Imran Khan

    Discussing the budgetary allocations of the ministry and various development schemes for promoting sports in the country, the Prime Minister was informed that various important schemes worth billions of rupees were left incomplete since 2008 with little progress on physical infrastructure.

    The Prime Minister directed that all pending schemes should be reviewed in order to ascertain their utility and reasons for their incompletion.

    Discussing the performance of various sports federations and associations, it was decided to take on the plethora of sports federations/associations for non-performance resulting in a pathetic outlook of Pakistan sports despite getting funding from various national and international sources, including federal and provincial governments.

    The aim is to revamp the whole ambit of sports, from infrastructure to organizational structures and operating systems, for introducing merit, transparency and performance criteria so that Pakistan, a nation of over 200 million with 60% population below 30 years, could rule the sports world.

    It was also decided that the government organizations dealing with sports would also be revamped and/or re-structured as they too have failed to achieve the purpose for which they were created.

    It was decided during the meeting to constitute a Task Force on sports, under Mani, to review the performance of all sports bodies, analyse the efficacy and utilization of various funds received from various sources and suggest administrative reforms for promoting sports at national as well as regional level.

    The Prime Minister directed that the first step should be to improve sports grounds in order to provide opportunity to the youth to manifest their talent and excel in sports.

    Reviewing the progress of various youth-focussed programs, it was informed that a liability of over Rs1 billion was pending in lieu of payment of stipend to the interns under the National Internship Program.

    The Prime Minister directed that initiatives such as National Internship Program should be strengthened and greater opportunities should be provided to the young graduates to help them gain practical training in various fields.

    The Prime Minister was also briefed about the performance of National Paralympic Committee. He appreciated the progress made so far by the National Paralympic Committee.

    “It was also decided that the government organizations dealing with sports would also be revamped/re-structured as they too have failed to achieve the purpose for which they were created,” says the statement.

    The statement further said that during the meeting the decision to constitute a task force on sports under Ehsan Mani was taken to review the performance of all sports bodies, analyse the efficacy and utilisation of funds received from various sources and suggest administrative reforms for promoting sports at national as well as regional level.

    Good move..However what should be concerning everyone is not the number of task forces its the state of every public sector org that the new govt reviews..one wonders whats been going on for the last 15-20 years. In a way you should simply scrap it all and start again but that isnt possible so the next best thing is to look at the AS is situation and come up with some recommendations for change. Luckily all the task forces will have to report their findings very soon. This can move quickly if done right..

    PESHAWAR: Ehsan Mani, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman and head of the Pakistan Task Force on Sports, on Thursday said Prime Minister Imran Khan is keen to boost sports sector in the country and that is why the PM has tasked him with streamlining all sporting affairs.

    Talking exclusively to APP, Mani underlined the need for a long-term strategy to improve and streamline sports in Pakistan which according to him has almost reached the dead-end and further deteriorating with each passing day.

    “We have jumped into the field to completely revamp the sports-related affairs with a wish to involve private sector to get more sponsorship for ensuring the best available resources and facilities to our players,” Mani said.

    Accompanied by Fata Olympic Association president Shahid Khan Shinwari, Mani said the prime minister is truly spirited to make Pakistan a progressive country in the world of sports and other sectors.

    “I will continue my endeavours for coming up to the expectations of the prime minister with regard to developing sports at grassroots level in Pakistan and bring back the right man for the right job.”

    Mani, who was elected unopposed PCB chairman for a three-year term after his nomination by the prime minister as the PCB patron, has a vast cricket administration experience and is also a member of the board of governors.

    He previously represented Pakistan at the International Cricket Council from 1996-2002 and served as its president from 2003 to 2006.

    Mani said the PCB has a duty to protect its players’ welfare as well as their reputation and using his vast experience he wants to introduce long-term planning to bring back talented youth of Fata into cricket mainstream.

    “I proposed eight regional [cricket] teams by myself with an aim to give ample opportunities to each of the youth associated with the game to come forward and show talent. Such steps would also enhance the selection pool of the players for national teams,” he said.

    “I’m really impressed the way new talent from the tribal areas, despite facing difficult situation, is coming up. Developing infrastructure will help these youngsters not only in the game of cricket but in other disciplines too,” Mani remarked.

    “I want to work on eight to nine games right now from the grassroots level by involving the private sector.”

    He also appreciated Shahid for his dedicated and sustained efforts in bringing back tribal youth to playing fields.

    Speaking on the occasion, Shahid said the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after completion of 110 grounds at tehsil, district and educational institutions levels has also announced construction of 1,000 grounds.

    “It would certainly lure every youngster of the tribal belt towards playing fields instead of going into wrong hands,” Mani said and added, “I am also working on a comprehensive plan to ensure facilities to the youth and soon that plan would be submitted to the prime minister for approval.”

    The formulation of task forces should be our national sport. But I do hope that something good comes out of it.

    ISLAMABAD: The task force on sports headed by Ehsan Mani is scheduled to brief Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday (today) on its findings and proposals for the uplift of sports in the country.
    Jamil Ahmad, secretary Inter Provincial Coordination (IPC), told ‘The News’ that depending on the prime minister’s availability, the briefing would be held on Wednesday.

    Though the task force was given the mandate to look into all options and finalise a detailed framework for the uplift of sports, matters pertaining to hockey would also be discussed in the meeting.

    “Hockey is Pakistan’s national sport and as such requires special handling,” the IPC secretary said.

    A few days back while talking to ‘The News’, Mani, who is also the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, called on all sports bodies to tighten up their system to get the finances to run the organisations on their own and in an effective way.

    Mani had said there was a need to streamline the prevailing sports system in the country.

    “There is absolutely no prevailing professional system in sports bodies which has resulted in total chaos. Even cricket administration requires more professionalism and we are working on it.

    “You need a better, collective and professional management of the federations including hockey,” Mani had said.

    On a question regarding the task force’s findings, Mani said, “The task force during a recent meeting with IPC Minister Dr Fehmida Mirza discussed the finalised report and considered all relevant aspects.

    “It was a comprehensive meeting with the minister in which all matters pertaining to Olympic sports including hockey were discussed before one final meeting with the prime minister.”

    It is believed that IPC Minister Dr Fehmida Mirza will also be present at the task force’s briefing to the prime minister.

    Though Mani was unwilling to extend any financial help to hockey from the PCB’s kitty, the matter could well be discussed today.
