Andhra Pradesh won the chance to host the 2019 National Games after Meghalaya withdrew from the bidding process in the last minutes. State Government on Wednesday submitted Rs 50 lakhs out of the total Rs 5 crore bid amount to the Indian Olympic Association at the executive committee meeting in Guwahati. The remaining Rs 4.5 crore will be settled within few days.
Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh (SAAP) informs Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu wishes to host the prestigious event in the new capital Amravati. The motto is to garner the Nation's attention by organizing National Games in a grand manner and bring the much-needed media coverage for AP's new capital. If Naidu succeeds in making 2019 National Games a big success, TDP will get benefitted from it in a big way as General Elections were scheduled to happen in the same year. A clever move by Political Chanakya!
