Why does the Sports Ministry make a big song and dance about providing sports gear to schools?. It is expected that the sports ministry would provide , guide and facilitate sports in schools all over the country. Why are the ministers involved and spending lot of money? . The politicians think that they can get publicity doing their job. The sports gear should be supplied through the departments without incurring further expenses.
