He said, “Sportspersons could not perform well in past because of nepotism, corruption, we cleaned system on coming to power.”

The PM said, “In 2014, the series of ‘first & best’ began in the nation, and our young took it ahead even in sports. Eight years ago, Indian athletes competed in less than 100 international events. Today, they participate in over 300 international events.

PM Modi spoke to all of the athletes from throughout the nation on this occasion of the inauguration. Olympians Ravi Kumar Dahiya, Neeraj Chopra, and PV Sindhu all participated in the competition.

Gujarat will hold a National Games for the first time in its history. The Games will take place in Gujarat’s six cities of Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot, and Bhavnagar from September 29 to October 12.

The largest National Games ever will take place with about 15,000 athletes, coaches, and officials competing in 36 sports disciplines from throughout the nation. The six cities of Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot, and Bhavnagar will host the athletic activities.

The state of Gujarat “embarked on the road to establish a solid sports infrastructure of world standards, which assisted the state to prepare for the games in a very short period of time,” according to PMO, under the direction of the former Gujarat Chief Minister.
