CHITRAL: The district cup polo tournament got underway here with teams coming from all parts of Chitral from Drosh to Mastuj.
For the first time, a team, Shandur Polo Cup, consisting of young players is also taking part in the tournament.
The event will conclude on June 25.
Some of the players said keeping horses had become un-affordable.
They said though the KP government had announced millions of rupees for the promotion of tourism, if the amount was spent judiciously, polo players could be helped to keep the traditional game alive.-–GH Farooqui
