SAG may be shifted from India

 
January 22, 2013

KARACHI: Pakistan Olympic Association (POA) president Lt Gen (retd) Arif Hasan on Monday said that joint efforts would be made to convince India if it was not in a position to hold the South Asian Games (SAG) then it should be shifted to any other country.
“I will try to contact Bangladesh and Sri Lanka next week and we will talk to India if they are not able to hold it then with consensus the event would be moved to any other country,” Hasan told ‘The News’ after the press conference.
India was supposed to hold the National Games last year but it delayed it till February 2013 but the same commitment also could not be fulfilled and now an International Olympic Committee (IOC) ban on the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has further reduced the chances of the spectacle.
