Zonal-level sports meet begins in Kadur

He was presiding over the inaugural of Kadur zonal level sports meet held at Government PU College here on Tuesday. “When geographically small countries bag the highest number of medals in Olympics, our country slips to the bottom with minimum number of medals. This is regrettable,” he said.
