Nyokum Yullo football c’ship kicked off

SEPPA, 10 Feb: MLA Tapuk Taku on Thursday kicked off the Golden Jubilee Nyokum Yullo Celebration Football Championship being conducted by the Golden Jubilee Nyokum Yullo Celebration Committee-2022 at the general ground here in East Kameng district.

“Winning and losing are part of any game. Therefore, play the game with a true spirit of sportsmanship. The prime aim of participation should be to create a stage of teamwork, inclusiveness, endurance and integrity,” the MLA said in his address.

Encouraging the youths to get involved in sports activities, Taku appealed to them to refrain from consumption of drugs and other harmful substances.

“I also appeal to NGOs to come forward to create more awareness on such antisocial activities. Drugs not only harm an individual but also destroy the life of your parents,” he said.

He appealed to the youths to encourage the ‘Drugs choro, khel mein joro’ campaign initiated by Sports Minister Mama Natung, “so that youths will be engaged in sports activities instead of antisocial activities like drugs.”
