Assam is emerging as a promising sports hub of the nation. Sportspersons from Assam have put up the name of the state and the nation on the world map in a glorious way by winning accolades in several prestigious sports events, such as World Championships, Asian Games, National Games, etc. What is worth-mentioning is the fact that most of the celebrated sportspersons of the state belong to the rural region. Due to the present government’s deep emphasis on sports sector, Guwahati has come to be known as the sports city of India.

Rural Assam has played an instrumental role in bringing in sports fame to the state. These areas host huge ground to recognise and bring up hidden sports talent of the state. Thus, MyGov Assam seeks suggestions from citizens on ways to facilitate rural sportspersons and to equip rural areas to ensure optimum productivity in the sector.
