The programme was organized to honour the players who won gold medals in the last 13th South Asian Games.
He further assured that the party would work more for the rights of players once the NC makes the government. He reminded that the government led by the NC in the past had worked for the welfare of the players. The President praised the performance the players had in the SAG.
