News : Sports Minister asks SAI to look into hiring differently-abled coaches

Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju has urged the Sports Authority of India to look into appointing differently-abled coaches to train athletes with speech and hearing impairments. Rijiju was responding to a suggestion made by the All India Sports Council for Deaf during a virtual meeting. The SAI official however said that the ensuing lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and a number of factors means that process could take at least six months to go through. Members of 15 National Sports Federations were also present in the video-conference which was the second round of meetings that the minister is having with presidents and secretary generals of NSFs around the country.
