Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju has said that a new sports policy was under consideration where every player would be supported by the government. 

He also expressed hope that India will do better at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. The minister said that this policy will be introduced after consultations with various sports organisations and the private sector. 

He was speaking after the inauguration of the 6th Asian School Table Tennis Championship in Vadodara today. Mr Rijiju said, his ministry will soon convene a meeting with sports departments of all states and private sector representatives to protect interests of athletes and ensure their welfare. Noting that promotion of sports is the primary responsibility of state governments, Sports Minister said that the Centre supplements efforts of the states for bridging gaps in infrastructure.
