Gopal Shetty, member of parliament from Mumbai North, had earlier initiated the renaming of the sports complex of the Government of India, located in Kandivali East, after former Prime Minister of India, Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Soon, a letter of reference was written by MP Shetty to the Sports Ministry.

The journey of MP Gopal Shetty has been extremely interesting starting off as an MLA, corporator to an MP today. In this entire tenure, Gopal Shetty has always tried to amalgamate the society and the younger generation with the ideals of all the great men of India through hanging garlands on the birth anniversaries/death anniversaries of great men. In the same way, by naming each of the complex’s after great men, he has set a great example of keeping that campus connected with the legendary ideals of the stalwarts.

On 10 July 2020, MP Gopal Shetty reminded the Sports Ministry with regards to renaming the sports complex. He stated that not only the country but the whole world is familiar with the thoughts and ideas of the respected Vajpayee. Therefore, if the sports complex is further named after the Bharat Ratna recipient, it will forever be marked by greatness and character. While agreeing to the views and demands of MP Gopal Shetty, Hon'ble Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs, Shri Kiren Rijiju, issued the order on 13th July 2020 to rename the sports complex in North Mumbai.

Therefore, Shetty has been successful in establishing the vision that he set out to fulfil. On the occasion, MP Shetty thanked Kiren Rijiju, adding that this move will prove out to be a humble tribute to the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Vajpayee, who started off as a journalist, was an Indian statesman who served three terms as the Prime Minister of India as a member of the Bhartiya Janata Party.
