A total of 13 disciplines will be held here, with hockey and kabaddi being scrapped due to “lack of participation”. However, these two sports will be organised only for demonstration.
Polo will be held as an exhibition sport.
Out of the 13 events, three will be military specific, namely parachuting, shooting and pentathlon. (ANI)
