Kolkata, Feb 5 (IANS) The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) on Wednesday said it has agreed in principle to hold the 2022 National Games in Bengal.

“Definitely, in principle we have agreed for 2022. But it’s an ongoing process. We will take it forward accordingly. We are willing to come to Bengal. Let’s be positive,” IOA president Narinder Batra said during a felicitation ceremony by the Bengal Olympic Association at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

The 36th National Games were initially slated to take place in Goa but were postponed on a number of occasions to finally take place in Goa between October 20 and November 4.

Batra stressed that the National Games should be held every two years.

He added that Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand and Meghalaya have already bid for the next editions.

“I’m being sacrosanct on 2022 and I’ll be sending you letters on that. Bengal had hosted the National Games way back in 1938 and 1964. It’s high time that National Games come to Bengal again,” he said.
