Playing field is more important than play station: PM Modi


New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked the youth to sweat it out on the play fields instead of spending time in playing computer games, saying “playing field is more important than play station”.

Modi said India is a young nation and it should be reflected on sports fields.

“The young generation of our country should come forward in the world of sports — and in today’s computer era I would like to alert you to the fact that the playing field is far more important than the play station,” Modi said.

“Play FIFA on the computer, but sometimes show your skills with the football out in the field. You must be playing cricket on the computer but the pleasure of actually playing cricket in an open field under the sky is something else,” he added.
