MA Stadium in a deplorable condition owing to negligence
JAMMU, July 15: Maulana Azad Stadium, named after one of the freedom fighters, is one of the home grounds of Jammu and Kashmir. It has always been the center stage for enhancing the sporting culture of Jammu. But with the disappointing conditions and poor maintenance of the stadium, its situation is deteriorating with time.

As a regular evening walker, while walking around the stadium, it felt as shabby as there are plenty of weed grown over there and no appropriate measures are taken till date. These particular patches of unwanted plants provide a comfortable dwelling place to numerous insects and the bad odor around this place makes the walk even more uncomfortable. Walkers, joggers, runners, players, etc. feel disgusted while crossing that area. Thus, the negligence by the administration which failed to ensure the maintenance has led to the current worse condition of the stadium.

While interviewing a sportsman, he said, "The only playground available for us is in very poor condition. There are heaps of grasses, unwanted plants which are dangerous. No proper cleanliness or removal of the weed is done by the management. Fear of snakes and countless insects are scaring us every time". Now, just look at the other side of the story.

On the left hand side of the stadium, there is a small but well maintained garden of the Sports Authority Council. Not only this, the park just opposite to the Jammu club is comparatively kept in a better condition. While asking a regular walker, she slammed the management for having lavish environment for particular members and messy environment full of harmful plants, unfriendly grounds, snakes, scorpions, stray dogs and smell for general public.
