He also assured the gathering of releasing funds for improving basic infrastructure for the stadium which was built three decades ago.

The Minister lauded the initiative of the Andhra Region Kho-Kho Association in organising the event in Srikakulam.

As many as 26 teams will exhibit their talent for the next three days. Twelve best players will be selected from the teams and they will get chance to play in the national tournament that will begin on May 27 in Ongole.

Padmavati participated in the inaugural programme. Kho-Kho Association representative K. Srinivasa Rao expressed satisfaction over the arrangements at the stadium.
