Goa govt seeks new dates for holding National Games
Goa July 24:-
The Goa government has sought new dates for holding National Games. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant told the Legislative Assembly in Panaji today that it was not possible to put up the infrastructure required for hosting the National Games by November this year.

He said the state government has requested the Indian Olympic Association to grant minimum five-month time for holding the Games and allot dates in May next year.

The IOA had recently fined the Goa government for frequently missing the deadlines to host the games in the last four years.

The National Games were earlier scheduled to be held in March- April 2019, but were postponed to November on account of Lok Sabha elections, by-polls in the state and HSC examinations.
