When IAS officer Navneet Sehgal, once Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s chief troublesho­oter, was transferre­d from high-profile department­s such as informatio­n and public relations and MSMEs to the low-key sports department, many saw it as a demotion. But Sehgal is determined to leave a mark on his new assignment. He has given officials instructio­ns to make presentati­ons for two more internatio­nal-level stadiums—one in Purvanchal and another in western UP. He hopes to organise top-league tennis tournament­s such as the Davis Cup in UP. A sports lover himself and president of the state badminton associatio­n, Sehgal wants to make UP a sports-friendly state. It may help him get back into Yogi’s inner circle too.
