UP CM Yogi Adityanath launches ‘One District One Sport’ scheme: The ambitious One District One Product (ODOP) scheme of the Uttar Pradesh government has received praise from other countries for assisting in the revival of traditional crafts in the state. Now, on similar lines, the government has launched the One District One Sport (ODOS) programme for promoting local sporting talent. The Yogi Adityanath government hopes the ODOS programme will become a platform to create sportspersons who can represent the state at the national and international level. In each of the 75 districts of Uttar Pradesh, one sport would be identified, according to officials. Steps will be taken to find district-wise sport-specific talent and groom them.
Under ODOS, one sport will be identified in each of the 75 districts of UP and necessary steps taken to find district-wise sport-specific talents and hone their skills in order to enable them to represent the district, state, national and international level tournaments and championships.
