The completion of the stadium, according to the CM, will be a significant boost to sports infrastructure in the state.

Meanwhile, project coordinator Sanjeev Kumar said that although work on the project started in 2017, they were faced with a shortage of labour and construction materials due to the ongoing pandemic, which hampered the progress of construction work. However, he assured that the work would be completed by November this year.
