Government committed to take tough Anti Doping measures
Sports Minister Vijay Goel has said Government is committed to take tough Anti Doping measures to provide a healthy eco-system for development of sports in the country. Inaugurating a Conclave on Nutritional Supplements for sports in New Delhi yesterday, Mr Goel said, tackling the causes of doping is a priority for his Ministry. Mr Goel said import and sale of sub-standard and dope-laced nutritional supplement is a cause to worry as an unsuspected athlete gets banned under the Anti-Doping Code because of use of these supplements.
The Minister also said, a collaboration of NADA with FSSAI and other agencies will have far reaching impact in improving physical fitness standards in the country.
