Kabaddi tournament postponed
The Punjab Gold Cup kabaddi tournament scheduled to be held in the last week of March has been postponed.
The Punjab Sports Director, former Indian hockey captain Pargat Singh, has stated that the postponement was owing to the forthcoming general elections.
Fresh dates are expected to be decided when the organising committee meets the next time.
