SILCHAR, Nov 29 - The new body for the session 2015-17 of the Silchar District Sports Association was formed after the annual gene meeting was held on Sunday at the indoor sports complex of the association. Even as veteran administrators Badal Dey and Babul Hore retained the key positions of president and secretary of the association, there are some new faces in the body along with those who have made a comeback of sorts.
Of the 250 members with voting rights, as many as 206 members exercised their franchise to form the new committee.
Speaking to reporters after the formation of the new body, president of the association Badal Dey said the team will work with rejuvenated enthusiasm towards the development of sports and games in the district. In the words of Babul Hore, the first task at hand for the new body is to organise the forth coming State Games slated to begin here in February 2016. He said that due to manifold issues confronted by the association in the past, the AGM had to be delayed but assured that efforts will be made to host the next meeting within its schedule two year time.
