India to organise BRICS games during Khelo India Games 2021: Rijiju

Aug 26, 2020 13:32 IST

After attending a meeting of sports ministers of the BRICS nations that is Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa on Tuesday, Sports minister Kiren Rijiju announced that India will organise BRICS games next year. He said that they will be held during the same time and at same venues as of Khelo India Games 2021 so Indian players from various parts of the country who will gather for Khelo India Games will have the benefit of witnessing BRICS Games from close quarters. This will be a great morale booster and motivational moment for them. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Rijiju is hopeful of organizing Khelo India Youth Games in 2021.
