Bhopal: The new National Sports Policy would be announced soon, Union Sports and Youth Affairs minister Uma Bharati said on Saturday.Addressing a meet-the-press programme here, Ms Bharati said the new policy to be implemented within the next six months would focus on qualitative reforms in Indian sports to make sportspersons competent in international meets.The Union Minister said she would hold a three-day ''brain-storming'' session of sports federations, sports journalists and Sports ministers ofdifferent states to discuss reforms in this sector. The suggestions emerging out of the session would be suitably included in the new policy, she added.Replying to a question about performance of Indian squad in Sydney Olympics, Ms Bharati admitted that barring Ms Karnam Malleshwari, who bagged bronze in weightlifting, the country's performance was dismal.She said Sports Authority of India's regional centre was being developed on 164-acre land at Goragaon near Bhopal.UNI
