Unheard, Sachin Tendulkar gives speech on Facebook

Minister Manmohan Singh

Mumbai: Cricket legend and Rajya Sabha member Sachin Tendulkar, who could not speak in the Upper House of the Parliament on Thursday, took to Facebook on Friday to share his vision and thoughts with fellow countrymen and political colleagues.

In his speech, the sports icon reiterated his desire to transform India from being a sport-loving nation to a sport-playing nation. Sachin went on to say, "It is my endeavour to transform India from being a sport-loving nation to a sport playing nation". Amidst another round of such ruckus, Rajya Sabha proceedings were adjourned around noon on Thursday. We are a diabetic capital of the world with over 75 billion people affected by this disease.

Tendulkar said, "We must build a sporting culture in our country otherwise, a young, unfit unhealthy is a recipe for disaster". "Despite repeated requests from the Chairman of the House that he (Tendulkar) should be allowed to speak on this important and public interest issue, the Congress did not allow him to speak", Kumar said.

Bihar boiler blast: 4 killed at Gopalganj; police arrests sugar mill owner
The accident took place around 11:30 pm when more than a hundred workers were inside the plant, sources said. Work was in full swing when the boiler exploded, causing serious burn injuries to workers.

"The north east of India, which has only four percent of the total population has a vibrant sporting culture. Sports promotes social harmony", he said.

"At a policy level, sport should be at par with any other subjects in schools". He said, "Maata pita jaise aaj tak apne bacchon ko puchte aaye hain ki kya tumne khaana khaaya, kya tumne padhai ki, mere liye vo din sabse bada din hoga jab in dono cheezon ke saath maata pita apne bacchon se ye bhi puchenge ki kya tum khele ya nahi (The way parents ask kids whether they have had food, have studied, For me the biggest day will be when parents will also ask have you played any sport)". He was believed to be keen on highlighting the importance of the Central Health Guarantee Scheme for worldwide medal winners and the need to include sports in the school syllabus.

He also appealed to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to ensure funds for the development of sports infrastructure in the country. Often criticised for poor attendance in Parliament, he had moved a Short Discussion Motion on the future of sports in India but the ruckus disrupted him from speaking on the crucial issue.
