New Delhi, May 26 (PTI) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said the government is issuing instructions to all sports facilities to stay open for sportspersons till 10 pm.

"It has come to my notice that sportspersons are facing problems because of the heat and the stadiums get closed by 6 or 7 pm. We are issuing instructions that all sports facilities should remain open till 10 pm so that the sportsperson can use them," Kejriwal told reporters.

The direction comes following a media report that the Thyagraj Stadium was being closed for sports activities earlier than usual so that an IAS officer could walk his dog at the facility.
