The underprivileged children whose parents work as laborers and those with hearing impairment got a chance to watch the Indian Premiere League (IPL) live at the cricket stadium. There were about 80 children watching the match live at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium at Uppal on Sunday night.
Around 50 children of migrant labourers from Odisha and working in the brick kilns in Rachakonda along with their teachers and 30 children from Ashray Akruthi School for the Hearing Impaired were allowed to watch the match between SunRisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals at the RGI stadium.
Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh M Bhagwat, was in the stadium and interacted with the children and expressed his happiness and said “This gesture will definitely help in bridging gap and create a positive thought in the minds of children towards the society.”
Adding to that the Commissioner said, “They were exposed to the atmosphere which they could not even dream of or they would be able to watch only on the television at homes or in their neighbourhood,” he also said that they intend to carry forward such activities and take children to the stadium whenever possible.
He said, “Most of the children wished to be in the stadium to watch the match live like others. We thought why not we take them to the stadium and give them the experience.”
