About 16000 youths applied online to participate in the ‘Sansad Khelkood Spardha’ started by the MPs, out of which 3324 players have been awarded. Congratulating all the people participating in the games, Shah said that the main mantra of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's 'Khelo India' is to create a healthy body and a strong mind and we all should take it further.


Kaushambi was considered the most prosperous

Shah said that in the time of Lord Buddha and Mahavir, among the 16 Janpads, Kaushambi used to be the capital of Vats Janpad. At that time, despite the development of many big Janpads like Magadha, Kaushambi was considered the most prosperous. 


He said that Lord Shri Rama and Kalinga Chakravarty Samrat Ashoka came to this prosperous place. Shah also paid tribute to Durga Bhabhi, the great freedom fighter of Kaushambi, who along with Bhagat Singh fought bravely against the British. He also appreciated the Uttar Pradesh government for renaming the Karenti bridge of Kaushambi as Durga Bhabhi Bridge.
