President to arrive in AmravatiNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:08 am ICT by admin
On Sunday, she will proceed to Hyderabad where she will open the 4th Military World Games 2007 at the Gachi Bowli Stadium.
The athletics stadium at the Gachi Bowli Complex with a seating capacity of 27,000 will be hosting the opening and the closing ceremonies of the games.
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.
The President will return to New Delhi on the same day. (ANI)
