SHILLONG, Dec 5: The third edition of Meghalaya Games is set to be a blend of modern and traditional games with an aim of promoting the traditional tribal sports of the state.
“We also aim to promote our own tribal games to establish the fact that we always had sports in our blood, and also because the youth should know of our rich athletic and sports history,” Chief Minister, Conrad Sangma said, on Tuesday.
He added that around 3000 participants will be taken around the state in order to allow them to interact with other youth and also understand the region better.
The state government is also looking to connect Meghalaya games to Fit India programme.
Sangma also said that the state is hell bent on making this an annual affair, with the next venue likely being Nongstoin.
Recently, the state government held a review meeting on the upcoming Meghalaya Games and has decided to hold the next review meeting in Tura on December 8.
