In a historic move, Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz has launched the Pink Games initiative, marking a significant milestone in promoting sports among girls in the province. This groundbreaking initiative, unprecedented in both provincial and national history, underscores Nawaz’s steadfast commitment to women’s empowerment and financial independence.

Addressing the enthusiastic crowd at the concluding ceremony of the Pink Games, Nawaz expressed her pride and admiration for the participants, emphasizing her dedication to their success. “It seems Allah has made me Punjab CM for you,” she remarked, highlighting her deep connection with the athletes. “The way you played games, I am proud of that. I got a lot of love from you. I am very happy to see your games and talent. You will rule the world,” she added, encapsulating her vision for the future of women in sports.

The four-day Pink Games, held at the Nishtar Sports Complex in Lahore, witnessed spirited competition among twenty private and public universities in a variety of sports including archery, cricket, badminton, table tennis, athletics, basketball, and hockey. The event culminated in an inspiring speech by Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz, who made a significant announcement regarding the expansion of the Pink Games to other cities across Punjab.

The announcement was met with resounding applause from the audience, predominantly comprised of students and teachers, who eagerly welcomed the initiative’s expansion. Nawaz emphasized the importance of inclusivity, urging her sports minister to ensure that Pink Games reach girls in every corner of Punjab. To facilitate this, she revealed plans for the establishment of playgrounds, gymnasiums, and sports complexes in other cities, enabling girls to participate in sports within their own communities.

In a bid to further empower young women, Nawaz unveiled a subsidized motorbike scheme aimed at facilitating their mobility and independence. Despite initial hesitance from some parents, Nawaz reassured them of the government’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of girls, urging parents to support their daughters’ aspirations for independence.

Looking ahead, Nawaz announced the launch of the Punjab League, a groundbreaking initiative expected to engage over one lakh girl students in various sports. She pledged full government support for women’s sports, emphasizing the allocation of necessary funds to ensure the success of both the Pink Games and the upcoming Punjab League.

The conclusion of the Pink Games was marked by the distribution of cash prizes totaling Rs10 million among 321 individual and team winners, further cementing Nawaz’s dedication to recognizing and rewarding excellence in women’s sports. With the Pink Games initiative and subsequent plans for expansion, Maryam Nawaz has ushered in a new era of opportunity and empowerment for women athletes across Punjab.
