Mela,football tourney schedule clash in Kalimpong leading to tension

With the schedules of two programmes to be held at the Mela Ground here clashing, the area was fraught with tension since early Tuesday morning in Kalimpong. While the Sukbir Rai Memorial Football Tournament is being played at the ground here since February 1, the Kalimpong Mahotsav Committee was found busy decorating the ground for a Mela on Tuesday morning. Taken aback by this, both the tournament organisers and participating teams started protesting.

Members of the Gorkha Janmukti Drivers Association - a representative team of the tournament organiser - led by Rohan Mukhia and Mahendra Gurung today met SDO K Radhika Ayer and sought her intervention. They alleged several matches had to be postponed due to the unexpected Mela preparations at the ground.
They also submitted a petition to the SDO while requesting her resolve the problem as soon as possible. The SDO has assured the tournament will continue unhindered. However, the Kalimpong Mahotsav Committee, which has also received permission for the Mela from the administration, is continuing with the decorations unfazed.(EOIC)
