Calcutta, Sept. 20: The SAI Eastern Centre is expecting good days ahead, at least as far as infrastructure development is concerned. Vijay Goel — the union minister of state, youth affairs and sports — visited the centre on Saturday and there were a few promises.
The minister confirmed that an astro-turf will be laid at the SAI Salt Lake campus and even hinted that a synthetic athletics track may also be in place.
Goel, on a review trip to a few SAI centres across the country, said he is satisfied with things here. “In principle, we have decided a synthetic athletics track should be there. Let’s see how things move,” he said.
