In less than a month, Nepal´s sports fraternity will be in full attendance at Dhangadi and Mahendranagar. The two cities will host the Sixth National Games from February 26 to March 4. This will be one of the biggest events in the region and the Games will be closely followed nationwide.
However, at a time when sports officials should be involved with the nitty gritty, they are said to be busy ensuring timely completion of the sports facilities for the Games. There are media reports, almost every day, that the facilities are being built in hurry to ensure that they are somehow ready by the time the big event is due. Also, these reports hint at substandard materials being used in the constructions.
