Polo Teams of Gilgit-Baltistan will participate in the Shandur Polo Festival-Sadia Danish

GB Times: Four Polo Teams of Gilgit-Baltistan will participate in the upcoming Shandur Polo Festival which is held each year between the teams of Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral for decades at the rooftop of the world.

The Polo field of Shandur has become controversial over last few years because the Government of Khyber Pakhtun Khaw is claiming the ownership of the field solely which isal last year in 2010.

However, Syeda Sadia Danish, advisor to Chief Minister of Giglit-Baltistan for Tourism stated that the most of the issues surrounded by the controversy have been amicably resolved between the Govt. of Gilgit-Baltistan and KPK. Therefore, 4 Polo teams of Gilgit-Baltistan will participate in the festival as well as the arrangements of the festival will be made jointly by the administration of Gilgit-Baltistan and KPK. She further stated that previously only Chief Secretary of Gilgit-Baltistan was making the arrangements on his own but this time the elected representatives have the charge of the preparations and it is a big achievement. Sadia stated that to resolve the matter Chief Minister Mehdi Shah has played a Vitol role.

Talking to journalist Sadia has stated that the people’s government is working hard to provide relief and satisfy the needs of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan, we have never been ignorant and slow in doing so. She further stated that I will not left any stone unturned to resolve to promote nationally and international the beautiful image of Gilgit-Baltistan. We have got our identity as Gilgit-Baltistan and are trying to shun out the previous image as Northern Areas of Pakistan.

    Its good to know that by this time 4 teams from GB are participating in the Polo Festival. Because the a healthy and progressed nation is defined by its Playing grounds and parks. And I appreciate it. we will see a tug of war between both arch-rivals of free style Polo.
