This was stated by Chairman Oli while addressing the inaugural program of Nepal Ice Fifth Jhapa Gold Cup at Domalal Rajbanshi Stadium in Birtamod, Jhapa from today. "Sports is not a political party. Sports should be kept separate from politics," he said. "I urge all parties, organizations and stakeholders to work for the development of sports."

He mentioned that the development of sports sector is a matter of interest, concern and progress of all. Chairman Oli said that he has always been involved in the development of sports sector. Wishing success to Jhapa Gold Cup, Chairman Oli urged the players to play honestly. He said, "Use skill in the game, not fraud, I urge you to win the game with skill." He said that his party CPN (UML) has given special importance to the development of sports sector.
