BUNER: The sports gala for four union councils of Buner was inaugurated on Tuesday.

The event organised by Chagharzai Youth Forum was opened by the district sports officer at Guluno Borai ground. The three-day festival will include cricket, volleyball, badminton, tug-of-war and competitions in the local and traditional sports.

The area people have appreciated the efforts of the Youth Forum for arranging the sports gala. They said the local government funds also include funds for sports activities, but the local government representatives of the area have not done anything in this regard.

The sports gala has been organised at an unpaved ground one the bank of a canal in Buner. The area people said the provincial government had promised to establish a playground at every union council, but that promise remains unfulfilled. They said there is not even a single playground in the four union councils of Chagharzai.
