New Delhi, Feb 21 : Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said politicians should be kept out of sports administration.
"When you are talking about sports and how to make it accessible, then more and more powers should go to the sports people when deciding things about sports in the country," he said at the launch of the 'National Youth Policy 2014' and 'Rajiv Gandhi Khel Abhiyan' here.
"I think that's the crux of it. Keep the politicians out of sports if you want to put it directly," he said.
'National Youth Policy 2014' and 'Rajiv Gandhi Khel Abhiyan' were launched at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Friday.
